About The Partnership

We are a consortium of global health initiatives (GHIs) —The Global Financing Facility, The Global Fund, The Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health, Gavi, UHC 2030— who have come together with regional partners Impact Santé Afrique (ISA) and WACI Health to develop and deliver a training and support programme on UHC Budget Advocacy and Accountability in Sub-Sahara Africa. This unique partnership leverages collaboration between the different GHIs’ agendas, such as the GAP, UHC agenda and COVID-19 response, and provides a coordinated, aligned and long-term support to Civil Society engagement in these agendas.


Investing in women, children and adolescents is one of the most impactful actions a country can make. It improves population health, empowers women to be agents of change in their communities, and puts countries on a path towards development and prosperity. The Global Financing Facility (GFF) is a country-led partnership, hosted at the  World Bank , that fights poverty and inequity by advancing the health and rights of women, children and adolescents. It does this by supporting countries to strengthen health systems and improve access to care through prioritized plans, aligned public and private financing, and policy reform.
With country-led strategies setting the way for women’s, children’s, and adolescent health, the GFF supports countries to mobilize more resources for health and make spending efficient and equitable. As part of its comprehensive support to health systems, the GFF helps countries identify and implement the health financing reforms needed to support priorities by: Leveraging World Bank financing Providing analytical tools on how the health sector is financed Strengthening public sector governance and financial management Increasing advocacy efforts for more and better resources for health
As part of the  Global Action Plan ,the GFF works with partners under the  GAP Health Financing Accelerator  to promote financing reforms toward universal health coverage. The Joint Learning Agenda is putting this health Financing Accelerator in practice.


Civil society organizations (CSOs) and youth are central to the GFF’s work to promote equity and ensure the voices and needs of the women, children and adolescents are positioned at the heart of the country-led process to strengthen health systems. Twenty-nine out of 36 GFF partner countries have CSO and youth representation in their country platforms. At the global level, CSO representation is part of the GFF Investors Group helping to shape the GFF’s strategic direction and strengthen its impact. Since its inception in 2015, the GFF has provided grants and technical assistance to strengthen CSO and youth engagement in country platforms.
