Evaluating Global Fund innovation - focused programs in the Asia Pacific

Project Details

Three people in medical scrubs looks at an Xray of a chest with Tuberculosis

The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria is a partnership designed to accelerate the end of AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria as epidemics. As an international organization, the Global Fund mobilizes and invests more than US$4 billion each year to support programs run by local experts in more than 100 countries. Understanding the impact of these investments will inform implementation of the Global Fund’s new 2023-2028 Strategy.

Programs focused on innovations, including of products, approaches, interventions and tools, have been a key and growing feature of Global Fund’s investments in recent years. However, an evaluation focused on the innovations they have funded has never been done. This new project will focus on the way the Global Fund enables countries (or not) to adopt innovations, and whether this contributes to equitable access. It will focus on the evaluation of innovations funded by the Global Fund and by other partners as it relates to the Global Fund’s mandate. The evaluation will identify successes, weaknesses, effective models and practices, as well as opportunities for and challenges facing equitable deployment and access to innovations and make recommendations for future application. The Nossal Institute will focus on case studies in the Asia Pacific.

A report will be delivered in August 2022
