At the the Fund’s Seventh Replenishment Conference in New York, The European Commission announced €712 million from the EU Budget to the Global Funds. This record contribution underligns the strong commitment of Team Europe with more than €4 million for the period 2023-2025.

With the new pledge of €715 million, the total contributions 2001-2025 by the European Commission to the Global Fund come to €3.5 billion.
