Women4GlobalFund Advocacy Brief

May 6, 2020

The Global Fund and the response to COVID-19

“Women4GlobalFund (W4GF) stands in solidarity with people around the world as together we face the growing COVID-19 pandemic, and congratulates the Global Fund to fight AIDS, TB and Malaria (Global Fund) for taking early action to support countries with extreme vulnerability. COVID-19 has drawn into sharp focus the uneven vulnerabilities around the world, and specific threats for the safety of women and their sexual and reproductive rights and health. W4GF affirms and agrees with the Global Fund Advocates Network (GFAN) asks of the Global Fund in the response to COVID-19 and also calls on the Global Fund to do more to tackle the uneven impact of the pandemic on women and girls affected by HIV, TB and malaria. COVID-19 magnifies gender inequalities and is already having an intense impact on women, especially those already living below the poverty line.”
