Global Health Council and the Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health (PMNCH)
9:00 AM – 10:00 AM EDT
The Global Financing Facility (GFF) was launched at the Third International Conference on Financing for Development in Addis Ababa in July 2015 in support of Every Woman Every Child, with the goal to contribute to the global efforts to end preventable maternal, newborn, child and adolescent deaths and improve the health and quality of life of women, adolescents and children. It is a key financing platform and a broad partnership including GAVI, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, MSD for Mothers, and the governments Canada, Norway, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States. This innovative country-led financing model brings together diverse sources of financing in a harmonized and coordinated way to support national priorities for women, children and adolescents. Since 2015, 16 eligible countries have benefited from this financing mechanism. At its last board meeting in Maputo, in November 2017, the GFF recently announced that 10 more countries will join the 16 existing countries: Afghanistan, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Central African Republic, Côte d’Ivoire, Haiti, Indonesia, Madagascar, Malawi and Rwanda.
This webinar is open to all of civil society. This webinar will provide an overview of the upcoming GFF Investors Group Meeting, key agenda items, and civil society priorities. It will also address the recently completed Youth Addendum to the GFF CS Engagement Strategy and other key updates from the GFF CS Coordinating Group.
