Health for all

Global Fund Partnership and Health Systems

Our work in Geneva and Beyond

UNDP partners with the Global Fund, governments and civil society to defeat HIV, tuberculosis and malaria and achieve a more equitable, healthier and sustainable future. The partnership strengthens national capacities to deliver essential health services, leave no one behind and build stronger and more resilient systems for health, including in countries facing insecurity, crisis or other capacity constraints.  

Our three integrated areas of work comprise:

  1. Health Implementation Support: End-to-end support tailored to national health strategies, plans, capacities and contexts to deliver essential services for HIV, tuberculosis and malaria prevention, diagnosis and treatment
  2. Capacity Development for Health: Building national capacities to improve the performance of health systems and ensure the quality, equity, efficiency, accountability, resilience and sustainability of health programmes
  3. Laws, Policies and Regulatory Frameworks: Promoting human rights and enabling legal and policy environments for vulnerable and marginalized populations to access quality health services

Since 2003, our partnership with the Global Fund in Geneva has saved 7.3 million lives, carried out more than 63 million HIV tests, provided care and support services to 920,000 people living with HIV and treated 107 million cases of malaria and 1.1 million people with tuberculosis.  

Our partnership works in close collaboration with other organizations headquartered in Geneva, including the World Health Organization, UNAIDS, Stop TB Partnership, RBM Partnership to End Malaria and Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. Together, we make a vital contribution to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, including global targets to end the HIV, tuberculosis and malaria epidemics and achieve universal health coverage.
