The African Constituencies Bureau (ACB) for the Global Fund was established by a resolution of African Health ministers in 2012. The ACB, also known as the Bureau, brings together the two African Constituencies West and Central Africa (WCA) and East and Southern Africa (ESA) represented at the Global Fund (GF)to fight HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. The two constituencies represent 47 African countries that are recipients of GF support for HIV, TB and Malaria control. The Bureau facilitates collaboration across the two constituencies, facilitates effective engagement, representation and participation of the two constituencies in GF processes as well as enhancing their capacity to shape GF policies and processes. It also ensures that Africa’s voice is enhanced to influence Global Health policy decisions.
In anticipation of the roll out of the new cycle of Global Fund grants (NFM4) and in recognition of the upcoming UN HLM on TB in 2023, the ACB will co-host a TB consultative meeting in in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia with the African Union, the WHO Regional Office and the Stop TB Partnership, for 16 high burden TB countries in Africa .

Identify ways of increasing domestic resources or other donors for TB response by reflecting on the existing TB financing landscape.
