Facing US$2.2 billion in outstanding donor pledges, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria cancelled its Round 11 of funding in November 2011. In the months since, several international organizations have undertaken research to ascertain not only the impacts of Round 11’s cancellation but also of general funding shortages at the multilateral funding mechanism.
This session on Wednesday 25th at the 19th International AIDS Conference in Washington brings this research together for the first time, and aims to provide national and international advocates with an accurate overview to bolster resource mobilisation advocacy.
