Côte d’Ivoire is both a donor to the Global Fund and an implementing partner of Global Fund supported programmes. Côte d’Ivoire has been a donor to the Global Fund since 2017 and has pledged a cumulative €914,694 and US$ 1.5 million. For the Sixth Replenishment of the Global Fund, Côte d’Ivoire pledged US$ 1.5 million.
Côte d’Ivoire has been a recipient country of the Global Fund since 2003 and has been disbursed over US$ 838 million for HIV, TB, malaria, TB/HIV and RSSH programmes.
The Global Fund is Côte d’Ivoire’s major financing partner in the fight against malaria and TB. According to Office of the Inspector General’s Audit Report on Global Fund Grants in the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire released in March 2020, there has been little improvement in reducing malaria impact indicators such as malaria incidence, mortality and malaria test positivity rates, compared to 2015 results and the national targets. Community-based interventions have helped stabilize TB case notification and reduce the rate of cases lost to follow-up, from 7% in 2016 to 3% in 2017. Community-based HIV interventions have improved the linkage of new HIV cases to care, but insufficient coordination among implementers results in overlapping interventions at the community level and sub-optimal coverage of targeted populations.
