The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria programme

Right to Care (RTC) was a primary recipient for The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Global Fund) grant. Entitled ‘Investing for impact against Tuberculosis and HIV’, this programme began in April 2016 and closed out in March 2019.

The programme had four main objectives:

to maximise impact against Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Tuberculosis (TB) and Malaria

to build resilient and sustainable systems for health

to promote and protect human rights and gender equality

to mobilise increased resources

The key focus of the programme was on:

prevention programmes for men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender people (TG)
