Canada’s long-standing commitment to the Global Fund

Backgrounder

In 2002, governments, civil society, technical agencies and the private sector came together to create a new mechanism to pool resources in order to fund prevention and treatment programs to end AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria as epidemics. Canada has been a supporter of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria from the beginning.

In 2016, Canada hosted the Global Fund’s Fifth Replenishment Conference in Montréal, Quebec. Under Canada’s leadership, more than US$12 billion was raised to help end the epidemics.

In 2018, Canada reaffirmed its support to the Global Fund at the G7 Summit held in Charlevoix, Quebec.

The pledge of $930.4 million for 2020 to 2022 represents an increase of close to 16% from 2016, bringing Canada’s total contribution to the Global Fund to more than $3.8 billion. Canada is expected to remain the seventh largest public donor to the Global Fund.

With its steadfast commitment to supporting the health and rights of women and girls globally, Canada is proud to contribute toward achieving the Sustainable Development Goal target of eliminating HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria as epidemics by 2030.
