Global Fund Advocates Network (GFAN), 2016
The Global Fund is now engaged in its Fifth Replenishment process and has set a goal of raising a minimum US$ 13 billion to meet its targets over the coming three years. In preparation for the Replenishment, the Global Fund developed an Investment Case that describes those targets, what can be accomplished if the targets are met and what the costs would be. The focus of this document is to examine the cost of inaction if governments do not commit the estimated resource levels needed to meet the 2020 and 2030 targets to end the HIV, TB and malaria epidemics. The failure to commit the required resources now will not only undermine the strong progress made to date by the Global Fund, it will increase disease rates and deaths as well as increase costs over time.
