Established as a partnership in global health, the Global Fund works closely with a wide diversity of partners –implementing governments, donors, civil society, international development organizations, the private sector and communities living with and affected by the diseases. This partnership model actively supports country-owned approaches that develop and implement effective, evidence-based programs to respond to AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.

Everything the Global Fund does – from governance to grant-making – is based upon three key principles.
1: Country Ownership – The countries where we support programs to fight AIDS, TB and malaria know how to solve their own problems. The principle of country ownership means that countries determine their own solutions to fighting these three diseases, and take full responsibility for ensuring the implementation of these solutions. In this way, each country can tailor their response to their own political, cultural and epidemiological context.
2: Performance-based funding – That means that ongoing financing is dependent upon performance. While initial funding is awarded based on the strength of a proposal, continued funding is dependent upon the demonstration of proven results. In essence, countries must be able to show where the money has been spent and what results have been achieved with that money in order to continue to receive ongoing funding.
3: Partnership – The only way to defeat AIDS, TB and malaria is byworking together. Under the Global Fund business model, the work is carried out by all stakeholders working together, including government, civil society, communities living with the disease, technical partners, the private sector, faith-based organizations, academics, and other multilateral and bilateral agencies All those involved in the fight should be involved in the decision-making process.
Together, country ownership, performance-based funding and partnership form the foundation of the Global Fund model.
The Global Fund is committed to the highest standards of accountability and responsibility. If you have heard of any instance of inappropriate use of money related to the Global Fund, please report it immediately, here: Report Fraud and Abuse
