OIG releases reports on investigations into Global Fund grants in Papua New Guinea, Nigeria and Eswatini
Between 10 July and 20 August 2018, the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) released reports on three different investigations into Global Fund grants in Papua New Guinea, Nigeria, and the Kingdom of Eswatini (formerly known as Swaziland).
Papua New Guinea has signed a $14.2 million grant with the Global Fund under the new funding model that emphasizes outreach and targeted prevention messages for key populations, as well as continuing service delivery even to the most remote areas in the Pacific nation.
« Finalement, le Fonds mondial est axé sur l'être humain » : le directeur exécutif Mark Dybul présente son rapport
S'éloignant du rapport typique d'un directeur exécutif, Mark Dybul, dans le rapport qu'il a présenté au Conseil d'administration à l'occasion de la 33e réunion de celui-ci, revient sur les six déplacements qu'il a effectués au cours du premier trimestre de 2015, des voyages qui lui ont apporté la preuve de ce qu'il appelle l'ampleur et la souplesse du nouveau modèle de financement.
Switching gears from a typical executive director's report to the Board during the Global Fund's 33rd meeting on 31 March, Mark Dybul reflected on the six trips he had made in the first quarter of 2015 that demonstrated what he said were the breadth and flexibility inherent in the new funding model.
The Global Fund will seek to recover some US$1.3 million in misused funds following an investigation by the Office of the Inspector General into financial mismanagement by the government principal recipient, the National Department of Health.
The Global Fund Board has approved up to $40.5 million for four interim applicant countries: Chad, Papua New Guinea (PNG), Kenya and Mozambique. The Board decisions were based on recommendations from the Grant Approvals Committee (GAC). This brings to five the number of interim applicant countries that have received funding.
