September 3, 2013
In a paper published in the September 2013 issue of The Lancet Global Health, Victoria Fan, a research fellow with the Center for Global Development, and colleagues examine performance-based funding at the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. According to the abstract, the researchers "aimed to test the association between grant ratings and disbursements, an indication of the extent to which incentives for performance are transmitted to grant recipients." They conclude in the abstract, "The Global Fund's present performance-based funding system does not adequately convey incentives for performance to recipients, and the organization should redesign this system to explicitly link a portion of the funds to a simple performance measure in health coverage or outcomes, measured independently and robustly" (September 2013).
