The Office of the Inspector General recently conducted an advisory review of the opportunities to strengthen efforts to remove human rights-related barriers to accessing services for HIV, tuberculosis and malaria. The OIG made recommendations that fall under three broad categories: aligning human-rights investments and understanding with corporate priorities; clarifying roles and objectives to drive the Fund's strategic objective of promoting and protecting human rights; and improving the monitoring and reporting of human rights-related investments and outputs.

The Office of the Inspector General has published its report on the Global Fund’s first case of ‘phishing’ fraud. The fraud, which happened after fraudsters hacked the email account of a procurement specialist within Senegal's Ministry of Health and Social Action, resulted in the misdirection of $481,541 of grant funds because of an unauthorized change of supplier’s banking details. Multiple control lapses allowed the fraud to succeed, the OIG said, though no collusion was suspected.
