The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria mobilises USD 4 billion a year, 65% of which is dedicated to sub-Saharan Africa. In December 2013, Ecobank entered into a partnership with the Global Fund, renewing its collaboration in 2016. Our contribution adds up to USD 3 million pledged over three years, split in cash contributions and services in kind.
One of the main aims of the partnership is the strengthening of skills of the Global Fund’s grant recipients through financial training as strong financial management is essential for non-governmental organisations and public organisations that receive Global Fund grants to support HIV, tuberculosis and malaria programmes.
As part of the collaboration, Ecobank also gives financial advice to the Global Fund Treasury about the banking context in Africa and we advocate globally on behalf of the organisation, mobilising our 16,000 employees in the fight against the three diseases.
