Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria: Review of the Roles, Functions and Performance of Local Fund Agents Final ReportThis assessment of the Global Fundís LFAs looks at their mandate and roles, their selection and management, their relevance and quality of service, quality assurance and cost effectiveness. The assessment identifies insufficient levels of risk assurance and cost-benefit deficit as key challenges, and offers suggestions for reform.
The Global Fund: Managing Great ExpectationsThis Lancet article reports interim findings of Tracking Studies in Mozambique, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia. Whilst too early to estimate the Fundís effectiveness, the article notes tensions within and between elements of the Fundís governance architecture, and highlights the limited capacity of governments to respond to the Fundís performance-based demands.
Global Fund Country Case Studies ReportDrawing on data from Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Uganda and Ukraine, this DFID study identifies a number of challenges facing countries applying for the Global Fundís First Round of grants. The report focuses on timeframes, communication, governance, processes, implementation, access, and equity.
Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria has Advanced in Key Areas but Difficult Challenges RemainThis is the first US Government Accounting Office report on the GF, just one year after the GF was established. It found that the Fund had made good progress in governance and disbursement of grants, but faced communication and resource challenges.
Tracking the Global Fund in Four Countries: An Interim ReportThis synthesis of primary data from Tracking Studies in Mozambique, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia found that the Global Fund was country-led, promoted public-private partnerships, and could be used to fill funding gaps; but it was also too disease focused, had the potential to undermine health systems, and faced a number of implementation challenges.
Absorptive Capacity and Disbursements by the Global Fund: Analysis of Grant ImplementationThe principal finding of this analysis of Global Fund grants is that poor countries can use GF resources effectively, and increased funding will not necessarily create difficulties of absorptive capacity.
Assessment of the Proposal Development and Review Process of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and MalariaThis external evaluation by Euro Health Group identifies sub-optimal performance in communication, country level data, CCM governance, programme support, and transaction costs as key challenges facing the Global Fundís review process.
Community Perspectives on Systems Effects of HIV/AIDS Funding in South AfricaThe report looks at 3 factors affecting health systems which received HIV/AIDS funding Ė additionality, partnerships, and sustainability Ė and highlights a lack of local level coordination (which hampers the value of additional funding), and counter-productive competition between organizations (which impedes the potential value of partnerships) as two important challenges facing HIV/AIDS interventions.
GF and World Bank HIV/AIDS Program: Comparative Advantage StudyBoth the GF and the WB had significant strengths. The comparative advantage of the GF was as a financing rather than an implementing agency; whereas the comparative advantage of the WB was its capacity to fund and strengthen health systems and sectors. The challenge was how to convert the GF and the WB into complementary agencies, maximising efficiency and effectiveness in roles and programmes.
Linking Local Knowledge with Global ActionThe prinipal finding of this study is that the Global Fund created strong incentives for knowledge to flow to local implementers, but little encouragement and few structures for lessons from implementation to flow back to improve global best practice or research-based knowledge. In other words, the flow of information was Ďone-wayí.
