Aidspan has been building its reputation for responsible reporting, commentary and analysis on all aspects of the Global Fund ecology since 2002. We have built an extensive global network of links. We try to always constructively comment on the extent to which the Global Fund’s Board, Secretariat and grant implementers are being effective and are living up to the Fund’s founding principles. We do this by publishing timely and relevant information and thoughtful, incisive analysis and; through facilitating critical debate; and promoting greater transparency, accountability, effectiveness and impact. One of our main channels to date has been the Global Fund Observer.
Aidspan is a non-profit organization based in Kenya whose mission is to reinforce the effectiveness of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria by serving as an independent watchdog of the Fund and its grant implementers.

Aidspan conducts independent and critical analysis and investigation of Global Fund policies, strategies, processes and structures, funding mechanisms, transparency and data quality. We publish its analytical content through reports, case studies, peer-reviewed articles, and reviews. Aidspan also provides guidance to those applying for, implementing or overseeing Global Fund grants by publishing guides on diverse subjects. Aidspan relies on a small team of in-house researchers and external collaborators with expertise in health economics, epidemiology, governance, health systems strengthening, and Global Fund processes among others. We are developing collaborations with research institutions and other policy-focused organizations. Aidspan aims to provide independent analyses on the Global Fund policies that can be used by our stakeholders. They include the Global Fund (Secretariat, Office of the Inspector General (OIG) and Board, including the committees), Global Fund donors, implementers, civil society researchers, and media. All Aidspan publications are open access. We welcome suggestions for articles and research collaborations.
Aidspan launched Global Fund Observer (GFO), rapidly establishing it as the definitive source of news, analysis and commentary about the Global Fund.
