Global Fund Investments in Adolescents and Youth in Eastern and Southern Africa for the years 2018-2021

The Global Fund to fight HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (hereafter the Global Fund) was established in 2002 as a major financier of health programs. The Global Fund spends about $4 billion a year to finance programs implemented by local experts (Global Fund, 2018c) in more than 100 countries. The Global Fund invests in those diseases following a funding cycle of about three years. The current grant allocation period covers the years 2017 – 2019 and its implementation period 2018 to 2020. There are a few transition months to prepare for the next allocation period.
