OIG investigation reveals deficiencies in Global Fund processes for procurement of HIV rapid test kits in eight countries
A proactive investigation undertaken by the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) has identified some deficiencies in the Global Fund’s processes for procuring HIV rapid diagnostic test (RDT) kits. A report on the investigation was released on 31 May 2018.
Procurement costs for HIV, TB and malaria commodities have either come down or remained stable over the past seven years, according to an analysis conducted by Frank Wafula, Ambrose Agweyu and Kate Macintyre at Aidspan. The findings of the analysis are described in a working paper published on April 29, 2013 on the Aidspan website.
