HIV, tuberculosis (TB) and malaria claim the lives of up to four million people every year. People living in low and middle-income countries are disproportionately affected by these epidemics, as fragile health systems struggle to deliver services. The situation is further compounded for those living in the midst of conflict, disasters, crises and political instability.

The 2015-2016 Annual Report on UNDP’s partnership with the Global Fund highlights the achievements of this partnership, and its work to respond to HIV, TB and malaria in some of the world’s most challenging contexts. The report includes an analysis of the current health landscape and demonstrates the impact of UNDP-managed Global Fund grants. It also provides an update on capacity development activities aimed at strengthening resilient health systems and provides an overview of the UNDP Global Fund Partnership Team’s support to UNDP Country Offices.
