Blog Post Examines New Ross Fund For Malaria, Questions Establishment Of Separate Fund

Center for Global Development “Global Health Policy Blog”: Right Idea on Ross Malaria Funding, Wrong Execution
Amanda Glassman, vice president for programs, director of global health policy, and senior fellow at CGD, and Andrew Rogerson, a senior research associate at the Overseas Development Institute, comment on the establishment of the $1.5 billion Ross Fund by the U.K. government and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and question why a new fund was created instead of the money being contributed to the existing Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. “…Reform of our existing Global Fund rather than creation of yet another new fund is the answer. We call on the U.K. and Gates to consider this option seriously,” they conclude (11/25).
