Examining Alternatives To Assessing Global Fund Effectiveness

In this post in the Center for Global Development’s “Global Health Policy” blog, William Savedoff, a senior fellow at the center, responds to a high level panel’s assessment (.pdf) of fiduciary controls at the Global Fund to Fight, AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, examining “what this report might mean for an organization that was expressly created to blaze an innovative approach to international aid and is being counseled to back away from that vision.” He writes that another approach to assessing the Global Fund “would measure the organization’s effectiveness by progress in combating disease rather than the rate of disbursement and the accurate accounting of funds” (9/22).
