KEY FACTS

  1. The Coalition has announced a $4.5 billion reduction in aid spending over the next 4 years.
  2. This is effective immediately and could result in deferring or cancelling payments in this financial year.
  3. Australia’s contributions to the Global Fund and GAVI Alliance are potentially under threat.

We have an enormous challenge, but also an enormous opportunity, to have an impact.
