Plans for operationalizing the forthcoming Global Fund Strategy

22 Apr 2022
Is the proposed “how” of Strategy implementation fit for purpose?

One of the hottest topics of 2021 was that of the development of the new Global Fund Strategy 2023-2028. From the 18 months of consultations culminating in the Partnership Forums of March 2021 to the development of the Strategy Framework, its narrative and the sometimes interminable-seeming debates on pandemic preparedness and response (PPR), everyone had something to say, and views were often polarized.

First look: the upcoming Global Fund Board meeting agenda

21 Apr 2022
The power of stakeholder feedback has resulted in a rejigged agenda to allow more time for discussion on some important topics

The Global Fund’s 47th Board Meeting will be held from 10 to 12 May 2022 in Geneva and is a hybrid mixture of virtual and in-person sessions. It will be the first time in two years since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic that the Board members and their alternates will meet face to face. The Delegations, however, will attend online.

Le GTRE recommande le maintien des subventions multipays et des initiatives stratégiques, avec toutefois certaines améliorations

8 Nov 2021
Il est d’avis que ces deux types d’investissement apportent une plus-value, chacun à leur manière

Le Groupe technique de référence en évaluation (GTRE) a recommandé que le Fonds mondial continue d’investir dans les subventions multipays et les initiatives stratégiques, qui, chacune à leur manière, apportent une plus-value, comme il ressort de deux évaluations indépendantes (une pour chaque type d’investissement à effet catalyseur).

Strategic Initiatives align with Global Fund Strategic Objectives but only cover some of the challenges affecting the achievement of the Fund’s goals

3 Nov 2021
Strategic Initiatives are not adequately focused on accelerating their intended outcomes despite being designed to do so

Between April and July 2021, the Technical Evaluation Reference Group (TERG) commissioned an evaluation to assess the extent to which Strategic Initiatives (SIs) have achieved their intended objectives. The evaluation revealed that although SIs are aligned with Global Fund’s objectives and are relevant to programmatic needs, they only address some of the important challenges affecting the realization of the organization's goals.

The Technical Evaluation and Reference Group (TERG) has recommended that the Global Fund continue investing in the multi-country grants (MCGs) and Strategic Initiatives (SIs) as both add value in their own ways, as noted in two recent independent evaluations (one for each type of catalytic investment).
