France is the second largest contributor to the Global Fund after the United States and created the 5% Initiative in 2011 to maximize the impact of Global Fund grants, by providing expertise to upstream and downstream activities, at the request of beneficiaries.
Our mandate is to support beneficiary countries in the design, implementation and monitoring and evaluation of funding allocated by the Global Fund to Fight HIV, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
The 5% Initiative helps to build more effective responses to pandemics and enhance the impact on populations. It is committed to building the capacity of civil society structures, national programs and regional organizations. It mobilizes expertise from France and French-speaking countries adapted to the needs of eligible countries and represents a bilateral approach to aid within the context of France's contribution to multilateral funds, thereby enhancing the visibility of French interventions.
The 5% Initiative is led by the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, and is implemented by Expertise France's health department.
Since its creation in 2011, the 5% Initiative has emerged as a key player in the fight against pandemics. The technical support mechanism has gained recognition from both beneficiaries and supervisory authorities.
The 5% Initiative is France's indirect contribution to the Global Fund and each year is provided 5% of the French contribution to the Global Fund (18 million Euros). In 2017, the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs commissioned a strategic evaluation of its activities for the period 2011-2016.
This study highlighted the relevance of its work, its coherence with Global Fund programs and its influence on strengthening the health systems of recipient countries. It also made recommendations to scale-up and ensure sustainability.
