A letter was sent to Honourable Shree Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister of the Republic of India.
For the Fifth Replenishment of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Global Fund) in 2016, Republic of India pledged USD 20 million to the Global Fund for the 2017 – 2019 allocation cycle.
The Government of India also played a crucial role and made history by becoming the first implementing country of the Global Fund to host the Preparatory Meeting of the Sixth Replenishment Conference, which took place 7 – 8 February 2019 in New Delhi, India.
India has demonstrated significant progress in fighting the three diseases and can lead other countries by example through further increasing domestic financing for health. The Global Fund has a critical catalytic role in supporting India’s ambitious goals to end TB by 2025 and achieve Universal Health Coverage. By hosting the Preparatory Meeting of the Sixth Replenishment of the Global Fund, India has sent a strong signal to other donor countries of the Global Fund about India’s leadership role in health and strong support to the Global Fund.
