Annual Report 2012

Both Aidspan and the Global Fund have had busy years.The Fund announced in its Results Report that since 2002, Global Fund grants (of over $22 billion to countries and programmes worldwide) haveled to the saving of about 8.7 million lives. This is the estimated impact of the Fund’s support for anti-retroviral therapy for HIV and AIDS, TB treatment, and distribution of insecticide-treated mosquito nets.Aidspan’s vision is that through its critical comments, its analysis and its watchdogging at least some of those lives were saved as a result of our work. But both institutions want and can do better.Aidspan continues to be a "critical friend"of the Global Fund. It wants the Fund to have the maximum possible impact on the epidemics. It believes that the Fund is a remarkable model, even if there remain problems with some of its structures and with some of the implementationof itsgrants.We continue to believe that Aidspan’s role as objective, independentobserver is a necessary one –shining light on the good, the bad and the ugly.An overview of 2012 shows this was a more positive year than the previous one forthe Global Fund:a new General Manager leading to a new Executive Director, a new strategy approved, a new funding model designed, approved and ready to roll out in a transition year, an inspector general out, and a new acting inspectr generalwelcomed –truly a busy year.Aidspan has reported, analysed and commented on each of these changes.We have published 34 issues of GFO, which is 10 more issues than we were planned.This reflectsof how much there was to report, as well ashow hard the editorial team works.Aidspan too has been occupied with change.In September Kate Macintyre took over and Bernard Rivers became our first Senior Fellow (see Letters above).We hired a new Senior Editor, a new Programme Officer in Outreach, and a new Research Scientist.We are now 12 staff,many of whommade tripsfor trainingand networking purposes, research and writing assignments. Trips for assessments, seminars and workshops included: Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, Swaziland, Namibia, Nigeria, Ghana, Zanzibar, Uganda, Burundi, Malawi, Botswana, and South Africa.The Outreach team haddealings with all thesecountries and spent hours in discussions around building observer and watchdog capacity on Global Fund matters.Aidspan’s new website, new discussion and e-forum pages, its grants pages and its new logo all testify to the theme oftransition that dominated the year. Preparations are underway to translate both the website and the GFO next year, as well as to use the new branding theme to finalise what we at Aidspan call the shift from “Aidpsan 1.5” to “Aidspan 2.0.” Aidspan welcomed the Ford Foundation and the German BACKUP Initiative into our donor group.We said a sad farewell to The Monument Trust who have been incredibly loyal and generous in providing $2.7 million over the past tenyears.We also welcomed a new strategic partnershipwith the Southern African AIDSTrust with the aim of improving the performance of country coordinating mechanisms (CCMs). We thank all our donors and partners.On theBoard of Directors, we welcomed two new members at our New York Board meeting inNovember–Isaac Awuondo, the Group Managing Director of Commercial Bank of Africa,and Fiona Napier, with expertise in communications, advocacy, transparency and accountability programmingthrough work with Global Witness, Open Society Foundation,andSave the Children (UK).
