The end-2016 data on the Global Fund’s corporate key performance indicators (KPIs) show good results for most of the KPIs, including two where the Fund showed particularly strong performance. The targets for 10 of the 15 KPIs were achieved or surpassed. The targets for four KPIs were not met, and it appears the Fund will not achieve parts of the target for a fifth KPI.
After a months-long review process involving a number of bodies within the Global Fund, the Board has approved 29 of the 37 targets it declined to accept at its last meeting, revising just five targets, and postponing approval of three targets until later this year. The decision was taken on 20 March by electronic vote.
See the table at the end of this article for a summary of the 2017-2022 KPI targets.
The Global Fund has pledged to re-energize HIV prevention and, in line with that commitment, civil society groups are calling on the Fund to offer more explicit data on how much it spends on these efforts. That includes not only overall expenditure data, but also granular information, like spending at a country level and spending on specific interventions.
On 16-17 November 2016, the Global Fund Board held its 36th meeting in Montreux, Switzerland. GFO was present, with observer status.
The Global Fund is on track to not just meet, but surpassed its target for the number of infections it averted between 2012 and 2016, according to the mid-year KPI results presented to the Board this week. This is one of 10 areas in which he organisation’s targets are on track, but four of the performance measures are below expectation or are at risk of not being met.
On 15 June, The Global Fund Board adopted a new key performance indicator (KPI) framework to track how well the Fund is meeting the aims of its 2017-2022 strategy.
The framework consists of three tiers, the top one of which consists of 12 strategic KPIs. The second and third tiers consist of implementation KPIs and thematic reporting, respectively (see figure). Collectively, the three tiers constitute a complex monitoring system.
When, on 15 June, The Global Fund Board adopted a new key performance indicator (KPI) framework (see GFO article in this issue), it also approved 12 strategic KPIs. The strategic KPIs form the top tier of a three-tiered framework. This article contains a description of the strategic KPIs.
On 26-27 April 2016, the Global Fund Board held its 35th meeting in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire. GFO was present, with observer status.
The Global Fund has failed to meet its 2015 targets on access to funding, value for money, resource mobilization, and human rights protection. The Fund is also unlikely to meet its 2016 target for health system strengthening.
This information was contained in a paper on the results of the Fund’s key performance indicator targets presented to the Board at its meting in Abidjan on 26-27 April.
The Secretariat has not yet established an effective mechanism to routinely monitor and assess The Global Fund’s performance against strategy. The current key performance indicator framework is ineffective and does not enable full understanding of the challenges posed by the Fund’s 2012-2016 strategy. Nor does it make timely corrective action possible.
