USD 2 billion replenishment target for newest global health initiative GFF

A World Bank mechanism established in 2014 to expand funding for health and nutrition is gearing up for its first replenishment meeting in November where it hopes to raise USD 2 billion from donors. The Global Financing Facility (GFF) differs from traditional health aid, its Director Mariam Claeson tells Development Today, because it links up to billions of additional dollars. How much of this money is actually new remains unclear.
