Le BCA aide les dirigeants africains à mener un plaidoyer efficace en faveur de l'augmentation des ressources afin de combler les déficits de financement existants - en mobilisant les ressources nationales - et en augmentant le financement de la santé par le biais d'approches innovantes telles que les investissements conjoints et le financement mixte. En outre, le BCA s'assure que les dirigeants du secteur de la santé représentant l'Afrique au sein des CA respectifs ont un accès facile au soutien technique nécessaire pour maintenir la délicate combinaison d'expertise technique et de compétences diplomatiques.

Such forums include Cluster-Based Learning Networks (CBLNs) which bring together 10-12 countries in each region who meet and interact regularly through face to face meetings, conference calls and sharing information on the ACB Intranet. Also, at least annually, the Bureau convenes consultative meetings that bring together all the 47 Countries from the two constituencies.

One of our objectives is to promote more and better resources, effective policies, and greater visibility of global health policy in relation to the priorities for ending the three epidemics in Africa. ACB work also help track the effectiveness of Global Fund resources to end the three epidemics and the broader health gaps and share evidence of progress and successes in Africa global health. We also aim to ensure that Africa governments effectively leverage on the Global Fund resources while maintaining their resources commitments as well as unlock new resources to increase resources required.
