Canada is at the forefront of international efforts to improve the health of the poorest and most vulnerable, including women, girls and adolescents. That is why Canada joined the global Fund to fight aids, tuberculosis and malaria, increasing its contribution to stem these epidemics once and for all.

Today, the minister of international Development and minister for Women and gender Equality, the honourable Miriam Monsef, has announced that Canada will contribute 930,4 millions of dollars to the global Fund to fight aids, tuberculosis and malaria, during the period 2020-2022, which represents an increase of almost 16 % compared to 2016. Combat these infectious disease outbreaks is essential to protect global health and address the health needs of the most vulnerable throughout the world, particularly women and girls. The minister made the announcement during an informal discussion with leading representatives from canadian and international academia and civil society. The announcement was made in anticipation of the sixth replenishment Conference of the global Fund, which will be held in France this autumn.

This contribution is a sequel to the historical commitment of the government of Canada to increase funding for global health to $ 1.4 billion on average per year by 2023. The approach of Canada in global health includes the health of mothers, newborns and children, as well as the rights and comprehensive services in the field of sexual and reproductive health.

The global Fund works in over 100 countries, and 65% of its programs are conducted in sub-saharan Africa, where these diseases have the largest impact. The Fund has achieved remarkable results, saving about 27 million lives since 2002, according to estimates.

Quick facts

In 2016, Canada has held the fifth replenishment Conference in Montreal. Under his leadership, more than 12 billion u.s. dollars have been collected to put an end to these epidemics.
