Global Fund welcomes Spain’s resumption of financial support

The Global Fund “welcomed an announcement by Spain’s Ministry of Foreign Relations and Cooperation that it will contribute €10 million (around US$12.1 million) to the Global Fund, a resumption of funding that signals Spain’s deep commitment to disease prevention and treatment.” The decision is expected to be confirmed by the Board of Spain’s Fund for the Promotion of Development on 30 July. Spain ranks as the 9th largest donor to the Global Fund based on its cumulative contributions. In addition to contributing financially, Spain “participates in the development of policies and strategies to fight the three diseases through its representation on the Global Fund’s Board.”
