President Obama's Budget Request Signals Confidence in Global Fund, Say Global Health Policy Advocates

April 17, 2013

President Obama's "budget request demonstrates a strong and well-timed endorsement of the Global Fund [to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria] in advance of the replenishment, and will hopefully leverage similarly strong pledges from other donors," Amanda Glassman, director of global health policy and a senior fellow at the Center for Global Development (CGD), and Jenny Ottenhoff, policy outreach associate at the center, write in the CGD's "Global Health Policy" blog. "But after a year of upheaval and reform at the Global Fund, the rhetoric in President Obama's budget request is much more than just a dollar figure," they continue, adding, "It signals a high level of confidence and expectation (from the Global Fund's largest donor, no less) that the institution will realize the potential gains from recent reforms, and indeed 'increase the efficiency, effectiveness, accountability, and transparency' of their funding" (4/16).
