This seven page document discuses a study by a team of researchers from the Global Fund who examined the association between (a) various grant and country-related characteristics, and (b) the "performance" of TB grants (where performance was measured in terms of the percentage attainment of the targets that were set for a list of nine major TB output indicators). The review summarises the study's assumptions and findings, reviews its strengths and weaknesses, and discusses some broader issues regarding appropriate target-setting and effective performance management.
