A private donor has provided $6 million to fund a gender-based violence intervention in South Africa. The intervention had been registered as unfunded quality demand (UQD).
In December 2016, the Global Fund signed an agreement with the donor, who wishes to remain anonymous.
For the first time, gender equality is included as a top-line strategic objective in the Global Fund’s Strategy (2017-2022). HIV prevention among adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) in sub-Saharan Africa will be a strong focus for the Global Fund in the coming funding cycle (2017-2019).
