CSIS Report Examines U.S. Government’s Options For Global Fund Replenishment

The Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS) on Tuesday released a report (.pdf) — titled “Options for U.S. Diplomatic Support” and written by Katherine Bliss, a senior associate with the CSIS Global Health Policy Center — that examines options for the replenishment of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria as it “seeks pledges of $15 billion to support planned activities for 2014-2016.” The report summary states, “Following reports of grant mismanagement in some key recipient countries in 2011, the fund went through an extensive, and at times difficult, yearlong reform process that has put new leadership in place, overhauled grant administration and accounting procedures, and positioned the organization to reengage with donors in securing financial support for its activities,” adding, “Yet at a time when some experts argue it is finally possible to ‘turn the tide’ on HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis, it is an open question whether countries and other donors will pledge adequate funding to meet the revitalized fund’s replenishment goal” (5/28).
