World Vision and the Global Fund

Our Partnership

20 million lives - the number that has been saved through Global Fund and partner investments. As scientific innovations progress, the Global Fund Results Report estimates that the number could reach 22 million lives by the end of 2016. 

Since it’s establishment in 2002, the Global Fund has raised and invested about US$4 billion annually to provide the services needed to help fight against AIDS, TB and Malaria.

World Vision, partnering with the Global Fund since 2004, brings life saving HIV, malaria, and TB treatment, prevention and care to our 100 project areas around the world.  Through sustainable developments, World Vision’s partnership with the Global Fund builds communities that will live in a world free of AIDS, TB and malaria.

World Vision and the Global Fund Portfolio 

World Vision's 2016 Global Fund report, cites that World Vision's cumulative portfolio of grants funded by the Global Fund grew to US$443 million. During its 14-year partnership with the Global Fund, World Vision has been the Principal Recipient of 22 grants in fifteen countries and a Sub-recepient on 90 grants covering all regions of the world. These annual results are for WV FY16.

Who are we reaching?

Global Fund and World Vision efforts reach communities with the greatest Malaria, HIV or TB disease burden.  All World Vision projects support national programmes using evidence-based practices to serve hard-to-reach, and often under-served, communities.

Global Fund grants contribute to sustainable health results in WV communities in alignment with the WV Child Well Being goal of "children are protected from infection and disease." For more information, click here.


After receiving mosquito nets and proper training from World Vision, many families are no longer getting sick. Eduardo, a father of four children, living in Nampula Province, just north of Zambezia, comments, “(Before) it was constant. It moved from one person to another. It never stopped. Since we got the nets, we no longer get malaria.”

World Vision and the Global Fund Malaria Programming

Since 2004, World Vision has been primary recipient of malaria grants in Mozambique (round nine) and Guatemala (round four) and subrecipient of 17 malaria grants in Africa and Asia, together totalling $89 million. All World Vision projects support national programmes using evidence-based practices to prevent and treat malaria, including distribution of long-lasting insecticide-treated nets, prevention education, intermittent preventive treatment in pregnancy, confirmed diagnosis, and improved access to artemisinin-based combination therapy.

World Vision and the Global Fund HIV and AIDS Programmes

Since 2002, World Vision has managed HIV and AIDS grants from the Global Fund totalling US$104.7 million. Formerly primary recipient in Guatemala and Armenia, World Vision successfully completed the first and second phases of those grants before turning the projects over to government and other local partners. Currently the portfolio includes four subrecipient grants in Africa, two in Latin America/Caribbean and one in Eastern Europe. World Vision’s projects have shown success in reaching marginalised and hard-to-reach groups, including ethnic minorities, migrants, and orphans and vulnerable children, using community strengthening and integrated socioeconomic support interventions.
