Shrinking the Malaria Map

UCSF Global Health Group’s Malaria Elimination Initiative (MEI)

Global Health Group releases briefings on the impact of the Global Fund’s New Funding Model on Eliminating Countries

22 May 2014

As the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria begins implementing its New Funding Model (NFM), the UCSF Global Health Group’s Malaria Elimination Initiative has released two briefings on the impact that the NFM is anticipated to have on countries that are nearing malaria elimination. The briefings summarize a comparison of historical disbursements to future allocations, and find that while some countries are projected to receive increases in funding, many will not: there is an overall projected 21% decrease of funding to the 34 malaria-eliminating countries and a 30% decrease in funding to the 15 country partners of the Asia Pacific Malaria Elimination Network. With this country-by-country breakdown, programs, donors, and stakeholders can start to mobilize alternative resources to bridge any financial gaps and maintain progress toward malaria elimination.
