Uniting African civil society and community voices on Global Fund Advocacy and increase in domestic resources for health.
The Global Fund Advocates Network (GFAN) was established in 2011 to unite voices and efforts from all over the world to support a fully funded Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. Hosted by WACI Health in Nairobi, Kenya, GFAN Africa has built a continent – wide social movement that demands health for all by recruiting, connecting and mobilizing advocates to communicate the urgent need for successful replenishments of the Global Fund.
Informed by the Global Fund investment cases, GFAN Africa membership reaches out to implementing countries, donors, private sector and foundations to contribute to the Global Fund so that resources which are raised are used to strengthen health systems prevent new infections of HIV, Tuberculosis and Malaria and to save lives.
