At that time there were approximately 3.900 cases of HIV AIDS, 155.000 cases of tuberculosis and 60.000 cases of malaria in Indonesia. Along the way, health system strengthening is considered as an important factor that will determine the success of the eradication of the three diseases above, thus the health system strengthening become one of the program that receives grants from the GFATM.
Initially the funding was given in a rounds system, then in order to make a bigger impact on the three diseases, the new funding model was created. This new funding model was designed to have more predictable funding, to reward ambitious vision, to work more on flexible timing, with a smoother and shorter process that will ensures a higher success rate of the proposals.
