UNDP and the Global Fund

Since 2010, UNDP as the Principal Recipient of the GFATM grant has disbured over $300 million to combat the three killer diseases. Zimbabwe is one of the 20 “high-impact countries” with large volumes of Global Fund funding. These countries comprise 70% of the global burden of HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria and represent about two-thirds of the total value of the Global Fund grants. A Principal Recipient (PR) is designated by the Country Coordination Mechanism (CCM) to manage the Global Fund grants.
