This section provides operational information about our COVID-19 response, including funding application materials, technical guidance, situation reports, procurement instructions and more.
Known as C19RM, the COVID-19 Response Mechanism supports countries to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on programs to fight HIV, TB and malaria, and initiates urgent improvements in health and community systems.
C19RM leverages the principle of country ownership and allows countries that are currently receiving funding from the Global Fund to apply to this new funding.
As of August 2021, we have approved US$3.3 billion to 107 countries and 16 multicountry programs, supporting country responses to COVID-19 with critical tests, treatments and medical supplies, protecting front-line health workers, adapting lifesaving HIV, TB and malaria programs, and reinforcing fragile systems for health.
The three areas should also incorporate cross-cutting activities that bolster community responses to COVID-19.
