TB advocacy resource: A Different Kind of Gap

ACTON releases an advocacy tool exploring what funding gaps in the Global Fund’s Grant Cycle 7 mean for the fight against TB and what happens if they are not filled.

A Different Kind of Gap: An early look at country proposals to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria and implications for the fight against TB

At this very moment, countries are applying for funding from the Global Fund’s Grant Cycle 7 (GC7) to put to use the resources raised at the 2022 pledging conference. Worrying gaps between the need and the money available are already emerging at well over US$1 billion – for TB alone. “A Different Kind of Gap” explores what these funding gaps mean for the fight against TB and what happens if they aren’t filled.

Advocates can use this resource to educate and call on decision makers to step up financing for TB. While admittedly there have long been funding gaps for the fight, the gaps today are different because countries can absorb more and rapidly drive results, are demonstrating increased ambition and capacity to respond, and there are legacy COVID-19 pandemic, as well as new game changing tools to be leveraged to strikingly accelerate progress! Use real world case examples and key messages from “A Different Kind of Gap” to call for urgent action to #EndTB.
