Invest in women to end TB – Where women lead, change happens

The Global Fund to fight HIV, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Global Fund) recently adopted its new Strategy:
Fighting Pandemics and Building a Healthier and More Equitable World (2023 – 2028). The Strategy
includes a reinforcing contributory objective to maximizing health equity, gender equality and human rights. At the same time the Global Fund adopted a new Global Disease Split at its 46 Board meeting which increased potential resources for TB. That is, any additional funds for
country allocations above US$ 12 billion will be apportioned at 25% to TB for this grant cycle, compared to 18% in previous cycles. We hope that this direction – together with stronger efforts to support women’s rights – will be a game changer and lead to more gender transformative TB response.
