An independent analysis of the Global Financing Facility (GFF) estimated that if the fund manages to attract an additional $2 billion from donors it could extend from 27 to 50 countries, saving up to 34.7m lives. … The analysis, published in the BMJ Global Health journal, projected the impact of the fund for the period 2017 to 2030…” (Gulland, 10/3).
