Comme l’a encore démontré il y a peu le rapport du Bureau de l’Inspecteur Général sur la mise en œuvre des subventions en AOC, la gestion des fonds alloués par le Fonds mondial et la mise en place des activités dans les pays fragiles reposent la plupart du temps sur le savoir-faire des acteurs étrangers.
Le Fonds mondial fait pression sur la République démocratique du Congo, confrontée à une épidémie d’Ebola, pour qu’elle respecte son engagement de cofinancement
Global Fund pressures Democratic Republic of Congo, facing an Ebola epidemic, to fulfill its co-financing commitment
The Global Fund has requested the Democratic Republic of Congo to prove that the country has fulfilled its co-financing commitment, or in other words, that the State had spent about $44.6 million on health during the year 2018 as part of a commitment to spend about 98.9 million during this grant cycle, as agreed during grant signing; otherwise the DRC risks losing up to $80 million, representing 15% of the value of the grants.
OIG advisory review on Western and Central Africa questions ‘challenging operating environment’ policy
Global Fund makes significant progress on Strategy implementation during a busy year of grant-making
A report prepared for the Board meeting on 14-15 November in Geneva, Switzerland provided an update on the implementation of activities under the objectives and sub-objectives of the Global Fund’s 2017-2022 Strategy. For each sub-objective, the report described the progress achieved to date, as well as key challenges and risks, and future plans. In addition, the report identified the key performance indicator (KPI) tied to each sub-objective.
Six African countries classified as challenging operating environments craft tailored funding requests to the Global Fund
Challenging operating environments (COEs) are countries or sub-regions of countries that the Global Fund characterizes as having weak governance, poor access to health services, manmade crises (such as conflict) or natural crises (such as famine).
It might surprise you to learn that challenging operating environments account for a third of the global disease burden for HIV, TB, and malaria, and a third of Global Fund investments. (For malaria alone, the proportion is 50%.) This makes COEs particularly critical to the Fund’s mission and objectives.
At its meeting in Abidjan on 26-27 April, the Board adopted a policy on COEs.
