In 2018, the Global Financing Facility in Support for Every Woman Every Child (GFF) is seeking a $2 billion replenishment for its Trust Fund. However, the GFF is very different from other grant-giving global health funds – it intends to deport from the ‘business as usual’ approach to development financing and transform how governments fund their health and nutrition services.

The GFF has the potential to drive increased investment in health and nutrition from both external and domestic finance. Save the Children encourages donors to support the Trust Fund replenishment but calls on all governments and civil society to make the GFF transformational by implementing the reforms suggested in this policy paper, and thereby building adequate, equitable and sustainable financing for health systems. If the mechanism can demonstrate that it will live up to the ambitious recommendations in this paper, Save the Children believes that donors should support the 2018 GFF Trust Fund replenishment.
