GFATM Overview

The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM) is an independent public-private partnership working to increase funding to fight these three diseases in countries with the greatest need and contribute to poverty reduction as part of the Millennium Development Goals. The Fund will support efforts in prevention, treatment, care and support of the infected and directly affected that complement existing programmes and/or activities.

In Latin America and the Caribbean, several institutions are working together to support the submission of successful proposals for the GFATM. This page reflects a coordinated effort of PAHO/WHO, UNAIDS and the LAC representative to the GFATM board (Brazil) to share information about this process. It also has the support of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).
