Togo set to secure €112.8M health grant from Global Fund for 2024-2026

(Togo First) - Togo will soon receive a grant from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria (GC7) for the 2024-2026 cycle, as well as from the COVID-19 Response Mechanism (C19RM). Victoire Tomegah-Dogbe, Togo’s Prime Minister, announced the news on February 28, in Lomé. 

The new grant amounts to €112.8 million (CFA74 billion) or 14% more than for the previous cycle. An additional €19.37 million (CFA12.7 billion) for reinvestment has also been approved for the 2024-2025 period. The previous grant cycle spanned over the 2021-2023 period and amounted to €98.9 million (around CFA64.9 billion).

Lomé will use the new facility to bolster its health programs, to fight HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria, as well as finance the National Centre for Purchasing of Essential and Generic Medicines (CAMEG-TOGO).

Togo is both a recipient and contributor to the Global Fund. So far, it has contributed $2 million to the Global Fund, with an additional pledge of $1.5 million for the seventh replenishment period of the Fund for 2023-2025.
