Lancet Comment Asks: What's Next for Global Fund?
March 12, 2010
Reflecting on the recent annual report by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, a Lancet comment writes, "Two big challenges remain [for the Global Fund]: first, to show, reliably and independently, that the Fund's investments have delivered the benefits that it claims; and second, on the basis of those independent evaluations, to make a new call for mobilisation of funds." The comment continues, "But probably the most important question to be decided this year is whether the Fund should aim to be the Global Fund for all health-related MDGs (including those for maternal and child health). Having proven itself these past 8 years and given the importance of coherence in global health policy making, in our view it is time for the Global Fund to make this step" (3/13).
