Countries need better data for accurate forecasting of funding gaps in Global Fund grants

Unfunded gaps are often calculated using unreliable data

Applications for Global Fund grants require countries to state the resources needed for them to meet their targets for HIV, tuberculosis and malaria programs, and to state their anticipated domestic and donor funding, including their Global Fund allocation for the duration of the grant. Subtracting the total anticipated domestic and donor funding from the resources they need gives the gap in funding for each disease component.
