Global Fund's seventh replenishment mobilizes US$14.25 billion

Donors gathered in New York from September 18-21, 2022 for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria's (Global Fund) seventh replenishment conference. The funding period will support the Global Fund's operations with US$14.25 billion over 2023-2025. 

Key donors made the following commitments: 

Australia: A$266 million (US$178 million)

Canada: CA$1.2 billion (US$904 million)

European Commission: €715 million (US$710 million)

France: €1.6 billion (US$1.6 billion)

Germany: €1.3 billion (US$1.3 billion)

Japan: US$1.1 billion

South Korea: US$100 million 

Netherlands: €180 million (US$179 million)

Norway: NOK2 billion (US$193 million)

Spain: €130 million (US$129 million)

Sweden: SEK3 billion (US$275 million)

United States: US$6 billion

Notably absent donors included the United Kingdom and Italy. A caretaker government currently runs Italy; elections will be hosted on September 25, 2022, and a new commitment is likely once a new government has formed. Amidst political upheaval, with the fresh appointment of Prime Minister Liz Truss, the death of Queen Elizabeth II and subsequent succession of King Charles III, and a 0.5% ODA/GNI budget cap which has reduced UK development assistance, uncertainty remains regarding UK funding levels for a potential commitment. Critics noted that some low-income countries eligible to receive UK ODA made pledges at the replenishment, while the UK, a top historical funder, did not.

Other countries, philanthropic actors, and private sector stakeholders also made commitments.
