Guinea has been a recipient country of the Global Fund since 2004 and has been disbursed over US$378 million for HIV, TB and malaria.
The Global Fund has categorized Guinea as a Challenging Operating Environment and placed it under Additional Safeguard Policy. The country is continuously facing significant challenges due to weak infrastructure, low domestic financing and limited human resources in the health sector. However, Guinea has made significant progress in the fight against the three diseases despite the challenging operating environment. The Global Fund investments in Guinea since 2003 has contributed to the reduction in malaria mortality and an increase in the number of HIV patients on anti-retroviral treatment. The Global Fund is also supporting the country to upgrade its health management information system to improve the quality of data in the health sector.
