In implementation of the directives of H.H. the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, the Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD) signs a 3-year Multi-Year Contribution Agreement with the Global Fund in the amount of USD 50 Million.

In its statement issued today, QFFD said that the partnership aims to end the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria by 2030 thereby contributing to the Sustainable Development Goal 3: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.

The statement added that the new Multi-Year Contribution Agreement will further strengthen the partnership established in 2017 between QFFD and the Global Fund where QFFD made a contribution of USD 10 million for a first funding cycle.

The Global Fund's long-standing commitment to fighting AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria as epidemics is well aligned with Qatar Fund for Development's overarching goal of promoting health as a central component for sustainable development and empowering people to lead a healthy and prosperous life.

QFFD said that it is proud of the strategic partnership forged with the Global Fund over the past years, which continues to provide smart and effective health investments and contributes to saving millions of lives by providing treatment and healthcare services to millions of vulnerable people in more than 100 countries.
