Multi-Country Western Pacific Global Fund Supported Programmes

UNDP and the Global Fund

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has been a partner of the Global Fund since 2003. The partnership focuses on three closely linked areas: implementation support as interim Principal Recipient (PR) in select countries and regions, capacity development, and policy engagement. UNDP as a UNAIDS cosponsor also addresses the dimensions of HIV and AIDS relating to human rights, gender and sexual diversity. In addition, UNDP contributes to public health and development partnerships through collaborations with the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (the Global Fund), Roll Back Malaria, Stop TB Partnerships, and special programmes on human reproduction and infectious diseases that disproportionately affect poor populations.
