The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria was born of an interest among donors to greatly expand access to basic services to address three diseases. Spurred in many cases by civil society organizations, the Global Fund recognized that the health services it supported would not be effective or cost-effective without efforts to reduce human rights–related barriers to access and utilization of health services, particularly those barriers faced by socially marginalized and criminalized persons. Through well-defined institutional strategies and financial and technical support to program designers and implementers, the Global Fund is generating a body of evidence for and concrete examples of optimizing health program outcomes by reducing stigma, discrimination, abusive policing, gender inequality, and other barriers to health services.
