CGD Blog Discusses New Global Fund Grant ‘Portal’

“The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria recently made it easier to find out where their money is going with the launch of a new, online grant portfolio portal,” Amanda Glassman, director of global health policy and senior fellow at the Center for Global Development (CGD), and Denizhan Duran, a research assistant with the global health policy team at the center, write in the organization’s blog. “This welcome and timely tool comes amid the Global Fund’s ambitious replenishment process that asks donors for $15 billion over the next three years to fight HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria — a considerable amount that totals twice the fund’s average annual disbursements over the past decade,” they continue. They conclude, “Being able to track money benefits everyone as we strive to maximize impact, and it’s encouraging to see that the Global Fund is on the right track” (5/17).
