The mission of GDF is to facilitate worldwide, equitable access to TB medicines and diagnostics which should help countries meet their targets set and adopted by world leaders at the United Nations High Level Meeting on Tuberculosis in 2018.
Under the current Stop TB’s Operational Strategy, GDF’s work is driven by three strategic objectives:
- Shape the market: GDF works with suppliers, donors and other stakeholders to ensure the availability of quality-assured and sustainably priced products that respond to market needs.
- Facilitate access to innovative medicines and diagnostics: GDF provides technical assistance to facilitate the introduction and uptake of innovative medicines and diagnostics in client countries.
- Provide best-in-class procurement and supply services for tuberculosis medicines and diagnostics: GDF ensures that clients have access to the quality-assured products they need – when they need them.
