The fund was established in order to serve as a "Funding Mechanism,” not an executor. Its main role revolves around “Cooperating with countries and interested governments in order to ensure the recruitment and provision of support and material resources needed to enable the fund to launch, execute and activate existing or proposed programs for treatment, prevention and control of these diseases”.
The Fund follows the principle of "Funding Based on Performance” according to the methodology based on the balance between resources distribution and criteria of evaluation, follow-up and transparent and independent accountability.
The Global Fund has been able to attract around 9.8 billion dollars for funding purposes between 2001 and 2008. So far, around 7 billion dollars have been dedicated to 450 aid grants directed to 136 different countries around the world.
