Global Fund’s TB, Malaria Efforts In China Reveal ‘Mixed Legacy’

Writing in the Council on Foreign Relations’ (CFR) “Asia Unbound” blog, Yanzhong Huang, senior fellow for global health at CFR, discusses TB control and malaria eradication efforts in China, noting that while efforts to control these two diseases have been successful, “a comparison of the role of the Global Fund in China’s fight against TB vis-à-vis malaria… reveals the uneven progress in grant performance in China. In the case of malaria, there is a low value for money problem.” Huang examines the Global Fund’s “mixed legacy” in China further with Jia Ping, chief executive director of the Health Governance Initiative, in a working paper (4/18).
