Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria
The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria (Global Fund) was developed by nations from around the world to overcome AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis (TB). The Global Fund aspires to contribute to international goals by saving 10 million lives and preventing 140-180 million new infections from HIV/AIDS, TB, and malaria between 2012 and 2016. These goals are aligned with the global targets set by the Joint UN Programme on AIDS/HIV (UNAIDS), the World Health Organization, and the Stop TB and Roll Back Malaria partnerships.
To achieve these goals, the Global Fund has five strategic objectives.
- Invest more strategically in areas with high potential for impact and strong value for money, and fund based on countries’ national strategies.
- Evolve the funding model to provide funding in a more proactive, flexible, predictable, and effective way.
- Actively support grant implementation success through more active grant management and better engagement with partners.
- Promote and protect human rights in the context of the three diseases.
- Sustain the gains, mobilize resources—by increasing the sustainability of supported programs and attracting additional funding from current and new sources.
The Global Fund is engaging increasingly with countries’ Supreme Audit Institutions, supporting their capacity while relying on their oversight. The Global Fund is committed to broadening its engagement with these institutions and signed a Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) with the International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (INTOSAI) and professional accountancy organizations (PAOs). The MoUs set forth the Global Fund’s intent of strengthening the audit and accountancy capacity in developing countries for sustained improvements in standards of audits, accountancy, financial management, and reporting in the public sector.
