In an article in GFO 305, we reviewed some of the similarities among the biggest global health financing mechanisms: the Global Fund, the World Bank’s Global Financing Facility in Support of Every Woman Every Child (GFF),
Les États-Unis tiendront leurs promesses vis-à-vis du Fonds mondial, c’est ce qui ressort de l’ébauche de budget que le Président Trump a envoyée au Congrès en mars. Lors de la dernière reconstitution des ressources du Fonds mondial, les États-Unis de l’administration Obama ont promis 4,3 milliards de dollars pour la période 2017/2019, soit 1,43 milliard par an.
The United States will meet its commitment to the Global Fund, according to the budget blueprint which President Donald Trump sent to Congress in March. During the most recent replenishment drive for the Global Fund, the U.S., under the Obama administration, pledged $4.3 billion for 2017-2019, or $1.43 billion a year.
Global Fund has no immediate plans to promote the inclusion of the new malaria vaccine in the programs it supports
For now, the Global Fund has no plans to promote the inclusion of the new malaria vaccine, “RTS,S”, into the malaria programming it supports. Although the vaccine shows promise, there are concerns about how it can be effectively administered.
Correction: On two occasions in GFO 122, we spelled out what GAVI stands for. On one occasion, we got it right ("Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisation.") On the other occasion, we got it very wrong ("Global AIDS Vaccine Alliance.") Our apologies not only to GAVI, but also to IAVI ("International AIDS Vaccine Initiative").
As mentioned in Article 2, the Global Fund and the Global AIDS Vaccine Alliance (GAVI) will develop a joint proposal form for cross-cutting health systems strengthening (HSS) activities in time for use in Round 11.
The Global Fund is in discussions with the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisation (GAVI) and the World Bank concerning the creation of a common platform for jointly funding health systems strengthening (HSS). For countries, a jointly funded HSS mechanism would mean simplified access to HSS funding, better alignment of financing to national HSS-related strategies, and reduced transaction costs.
