Event: Opportunities in Innovative Health Financing with the Global Fund

Alyssa GovindanNews, Newsletter

The Global Fund Private Sector Delegation (PSD) will host an event on the sidelines of the 38th Global Fund Board meeting to discuss opportunities in innovative health financing.

A significant increase in resources and funding is essential if we are to reach sustainable development goal (SDG) targets including eliminating HIV, TB and Malaria by 2030. Pressures on donor financing combined with the scale-up required to achieve the SDGs have led the Global Fund to consider news ways for the partnership to help leverage resources so countries can ensure health gains are sustainable.

The Global Fund approved the Sustainability Transition and Co-Financing Policy last year, encouraging the exploration of innovative financing mechanisms for increased co-financing and program sustainability. The Policy specifically references that tools may include loan buy-down mechanisms and other innovative financing options as appropriate.

This event will serve as a platform for Global Fund stakeholders to better understand the potential of innovative financing tools and discuss best practices and lessons learned from already implemented mechanisms. It will feature speakers from Ecobank, USAID, Living Goods, PharmAccess, Lombard Odier and Goodbye Malaria.

This event, which takes place on November 13th in Geneva Switzerland is by invitation only. A summary of the presentations and discussions will be available later this year.
