The Global Financing Facility (GFF) does incredible work for women and girls, but it's facing an overwhelming finance gap of over $1.2 billion. As progress in the health, safety, and well-being of women and children has been all but reversed during the pandemic, the GFF — whose mission it is to ensure that all women, children, and adolescents can survive and thrive — is more vital than ever.
In order to ensure women and children are prioritized in the worldwide COVID-19 response, we need to call on leaders to make financial commitments to the GFF. The GFF's multi-stakeholder partnership structure relies on commitments from both the public and private sector, and supports countries to deliver and scale up high-impact health and nutrition interventions that generate positive results.
We must work towards closing the financing gap to elevate the state of women and children worldwide. Indeed, most European countries, despite having among the richest economies of the world, have not yet made financial commitments.
Tell Europe's leaders to address the lack of adequate care for women and children worldwide and lead by contributing to the GFF.
