September 29th, from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Workshop co-organized by the AFD (Agence française de développement) and Santé mondiale 2030
Open to all

Created to fight tuberculosis, AIDS and malaria, the Global Fund has gradually integrated “health systems strengthening” into one of its four strategic objectives, and now estimates that it devotes more than a quarter of its investments to building “resilient and sustainable health systems”.

What are the challenges it faces in this transformation, particularly in West and Central Africa where health systems are particularly fragile? How is the Global Fund’s approach perceived, understood and integrated by other actors? How can it strength its effectiveness and its collaboration with the different partners?

This workshop will be an opportunity to present the results of a study conducted on the subject by sociologist Anne Bekelynck within the framework of an AFD / Santé mondiale 2030 partnership, but also to discuss the recommendations proposed by Santé mondiale 2030, and to participate in the global reflection on the development of next strategy of the Global Fund.
