Oxygen financing: Global Fund opportunities
The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria is a worldwide movement to defeat HIV, tuberculosis (TB), and malaria and ensure a healthier, safer, more equitable future for all. They raise and invest US$4 billion a year to fight the deadliest infectious diseases, challenge the injustice that fuels them, and strengthen health systems in more than 100 countries.
In recent years, the Global Fund has emerged as an important source of funding for respiratory care equipment, supplies, and services for low- and middle-income countries—with the COVID-19 Response Mechanism (C19RM), and more recently, via the inclusion of respiratory care equipment as a new allowable Resilient and Sustainable Systems for Health (RSSH) intervention.
This brief outlines key information and resources for pursuing funding for oxygen and respiratory care systems through the Global Fund via the C19RM and country grants. It is intended for use by applicants, partners, civil society, and others in developing funding requests and/or advocating for prioritization of respiratory care goods and services in Global Fund grants.
