Global Fund has achieved generally positive results against its performance targets, report to 41st Board says
The Global Fund has achieved generally positive results against its key performance indicator (KPI) targets, according to a report on strategic performance prepared for the Board meeting on 15-16 May.
On April 4, ICASO and APCASO announced a partnership to provide technical assistance to implementers of Global Fund-supported programs, to reduce barriers preventing people from accessing HIV, tuberculosis and malaria services.
Among the grants approved by the Global Fund Board on 21 December 2018 (see GFO article) were three multi-country grants. Two of the grants were for Eastern Europe and Central Asia (EECA); the third was for West and Central Africa. (See table.)
On 21 December 2018, the Global Fund Board approved 16 country grants worth $229.4 million. It also approved three multi-country grants valued at $24.0 million. The Board was acting on the recommendations of the Technical Review Panel (TRP) and the Grant Approvals Committee (GAC).
In April 2015, the Global Fund’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) launched a human rights complaints mechanism through which anybody can report human rights violations in the context of a Global Fund-supported program. However, in over three years, not a single complaint has been received via the mechanism. A year after the mechanism went live, the Fund began wondering why.
