Partnership forms the very basis of the Global Fund model.
Established as a unique public-private partnership in global health, the Global Fund brings together at the country level a wide diversity of implementing government bodies, international development partners (including United Nations agencies and donors), national civil society organizations (including local media, professional associations and faith-based institutions), the private sector, and communities living with or affected by the diseases.
These partners, united by a common stake in the fight against AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, are actively involved with the Global Fund at all levels - from membership on the Board and its committees, through resource mobilization, country coordination, technical assistance and stakeholder engagement, to implementation of programs in communities.
The overarching goal of the Global Fund’s partnership model is to create an enabling environment to support countries to develop and implement effective, evidence-based programs to respond to AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria. This partnership is based on a core set of shared principles and a collective responsibility for delivering on international targets on health through achievement of the Global Fund’s vision – a world free of the burden of AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.
Drawing on the strengths of more than six years of implementation, the Global Fund’s Partnership Strategy [ PDF - 378 KB ] provides a clear framework for the achievement of this goal. The strategy furthers the unique Global Fund successes of bringing forward the voices of civil society as equal partners in all aspects of our work and governance framework. It also supports the inclusion of innovative private sector initiatives and values other partners’ provision of key technical assistance that is responsive to the demands and challenges experienced by the implemented grants at national level.
Implementers are central to and drive our partnership approach. They deliver services, produce results, and stimulate innovation. Implementers also hold the Global Fund accountable to one of its most important core principles – national ownership of strategies and priorities through country-led processes and mechanisms.
The successes of the Global Fund and programs it supports will ultimately be measured by the number of lives saved and infections averted. In the global movement to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the ability of the Global Fund to contribute to the improvement of maternal, newborn and child health and strengthen health systems, represents a further dimension of the Global Fund’s impact. In this context, the spirit of partnership and expanding the contributions of all partners are indispensable to the achievement of the Global Fund’s work at the global, regional and country level.
