The Global Fund’s 2020-2022 allocation methodology is geared towards increasing the overall impact of programmes to prevent, treat and care for people affected by HIV, TB and Malaria, and to build resilient and sustainable systems for health. The allocations provide significantly more resources for the highest-burden and lowest income countries while maintaining current funding levels or moderating the pace of reductions in other contexts.
The Global Fund allocates funding to countries to support programmes to fight HIV, TB and malaria after every three years.
