BUILDING UNDERSTANDING OF AND SUPPORT FOR THE GLOBAL FINANCING FACILITY

2018–Present

In 2015, the Global Financing Facility for Women, Children, and Adolescents (GFF) was established to help close the gap in financing that is needed to eliminate preventable deaths among women, children, and adolescents in low- and middle-income countries. Housed at the World Bank, the GFF supports government-led, multi-stakeholder platforms to develop and implement a national, prioritized health plan (known as an “investment case”) that aims to help mobilize sustainable financing for health and nutrition.

Since October 2018, JCIE has been conducting a series of interconnected activities to deepen understanding of the GFF among decision makers and global health experts in Japan and to explore how Japan’s global health policy can align with the GFF in collaboration with other stakeholders. These initiatives include efforts to inform political and government leaders about the workings and contributions of the GFF, provide policy analysis and background information for global health experts, and build ties among global stakeholders.
