DELAWARE GROUP® GLOBAL & INTERNATIONAL FUNDS

Delaware Focus Global Growth Fund (the "Fund")

Supplement to the Fund's Summary and Statutory Prospectuses dated March 1, 2016

Effective on or about November 30, 2016 ("Effective Date"), the investment strategies for Delaware Focus Global Growth Fund will change and the Fund will be repositioned as an international small cap equity fund (the "Repositioning"). In connection with this Repositioning, the Fund's name will change to Delaware International Small Cap Fund.

The Repositioning will result in higher portfolio turnover in the near term, as the new portfolio manager purchases and sells securities to accommodate the Repositioning. This higher portfolio turnover is likely to cause the Fund to realize capital gains and incur transaction costs. You should consult your financial advisor and tax advisor about the potential impact that will result from the Repositioning.

The following is a summary of certain changes that will be made on the Effective Date as a result of the Repositioning:
