Data for Decisionmaking and the Global Fund |

Publisher: Center for Strategic & International Studies

The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria’s current five-year strategy “Investing for Impact” has guided a massive shift in its operational approach, leaving behind the more passive competitive rounds in favor of an allocation-based system that includes substantial back and forth with countries to increase impact. This change has been widely welcomed, but its success has been challenged by lack of data to guide smart investment decisions. As the Global Fund develops its next strategy, there is considerable energy behind a greater emphasis on strengthening the capacity of countries to obtain data, interpret them, and use them to monitor programs and guide strategies.
