Provoking Dialogue

Three Big Ideas for the Global Fund

The board of directors of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria is set to approve a framework for the organization’s next multiyear strategy at its upcoming meeting in November. The crises that have pervaded discussions over the past few years have helped generate wide support among board members for continuing the Fund’s current direction, which focuses on more active engagement with countries to ensure effective investment of resources. As a result, the changes under discussion are substantive but incremental.

To provoke dialogue within the Global Fund’s governance system and with its partners, Todd Summers offers three big ideas to address big challenges facing the Global Fund. While they do not suggest major direction change, these recommendations do offer a very different way of getting there.
