The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM)

Save the Children is one of two principal recipients of the Global Fund since January 2011. With an annual budget of ~ US$34 million from the Global Fund, Save the Children supports 17 sub-recipients that implement programmes in 251 townships (out of 330) in all 14 states and regions. These programmes seek to prevent, control and eliminate AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria was founded in 2002 as a partnership between governments, civil society, the private sector and people affected by the diseases. Globally, the Global Fund raises and invests nearly US$4 billion a year to support programs designed to accelerate the end of AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria as epidemics in more than 140 countries.
