The Global Fund has released a progress report entitled Partners in Impact - Results Report 2007. The report is one of several documents released by the Fund in preparation for the Second Replenishment Meeting that was held earlier this week in Oslo. The documents are available at www.theglobalfund.org/en/about/replenishment/oslo.
Partners in Impact reports on the results achieved by the Global Fund to 31 December 2006. It provides information on the impact that Global Fund grants have had on the three diseases, including on the level of services provided. As well, the report discusses the performance of Global Fund grants, provides many examples of success stories, and identifies problem areas and future challenges. Finally, the report describes efforts to evaluate Global Fund operations.
Some of the topics covered in the report are: how well country partnerships are working; progress made in developing in-country monitoring and evaluation systems; the role of the Global Fund in ensuring aid effectiveness; the effects of Global Fund grants on health systems; the contributions that civil society has made to the implementation of programmes funded by Global Fund grants; lessons to be learned from high-performing TB grants; and the need to strengthen local systems for the delivery of services (referred to as community systems strengthening or CSS).
