How can global health funders save more lives with the billions spent to combat AIDS, TB and malaria?  Check out this report.

Welcome to our report on improving value for money for global health funders.

Over the past year, the Center for Global Development convened a diverse group of experts to tackle the urgent question: How can global health funders save more lives with the billions spent each year to combat AIDS, TB and malaria?   

Members of the working group – which included economists, public health professionals and doctors, policymakers and practitioners – analyzed evidence, posed questions and came up with recommendations in four domains of a donors funding cycle: allocation, contracts, costs and spending, and performance verification. The group’s final report lays out a number of practical steps within each domain to improve value for money at the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria and other global health funding agencies.
