Ethics and Governance Committee
The Global Fund Board has approved changes to the composition of its three standing committees – the Strategy Committee (SC); the Audit and Finance Committee (AFC); and the Ethics and Governance Committee (EGC). The Board also approved changes to the selection processes for both the leadership and the membership of the committees.
At its meeting on 15–16 May 2019, the Global Fund Board is expected to adopt a methodology for use in determining the 2020–2022 allocations. The Board is also expected to adopt measures designed to strengthen the process of selecting members for the Board’s standing committees.
The Ethics and Governance Committee (EGC) is coordinating consultations on the processes to select the membership and leadership of Board committees.
The Global Fund Secretariat has provided an update on the implementation of its Governance Action Plan (GAP). The update took the form of a paper prepared for the Board meeting held on 9–10 May 2018.
The Board has announced the appointment of 33 members on its three standing committees for two-year terms that started on 11 May 2018. The announcement was made at the in-person Board meeting on 9–10 May. The terms of the current members of the committees expired at the Board meeting.
The Board also tasked the Ethics and Governance Committee (EGC) with reviewing the process for selecting the leadership and members of the committees.
The Global Fund Board has approved a new CCM Policy, which replaces the Guidelines and Requirements for Country Coordinating Mechanisms (hereinafter, CCM Guidelines). The Board delegated authority to the Strategy Committee to approve amendments to the CCM Policy.
A paper prepared for the Global Fund Board meeting on 14-15 November in Geneva outlines options regarding a future process to select the Board chair and vice-chair. The current Board leadership was selected in May 2017. Because the terms of the chair and vice-chair are for two years, the next Board leadership renewal is scheduled to happen in May 2019.
