Consultative Report Examines Value For Money In Global Health Programs

“The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria and its partners could save more lives with the same amount of money by allocating it in ways designed to maximize the positive impact on health,” according to a consultative draft report (.pdf) of the Center for Global Development’s (CGD) Value for Money Working Group, Amanda Glassman, director of global health policy and a senior fellow at CGD, writes in the organization’s “Global Health Policy” blog. The report, titled “More Health for the Money: A Practical Agenda for the Global Fund and Its Partners,” “is available for public comment until July 12, 2013,” according to Glassman, who describes “four domains of policy action that can improve value for money” and launches an online discussion on the draft report in an accompanying video (6/10).
