The appointment of this panel is part of the Global Fund’s commitment to ensuring financial controls are the most robust possible, and that donor investments go directly to fighting AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis.
The other members of the high-level panel are:
The panel has assessed the Global Fund’s current practices in financial oversight and implementation. To perform the assessment, the members of the panel examined a representative sample of grants in 40 countries in different risk categories, drawing conclusions and making recommendations. The panel visited 12 of those countries and made recommendations to help strengthen the Global Fund’s financial controls and anti-corruption protections. This review is part of a broader set of measures that continue to be implemented to strengthen the Global Fund’s financial safeguards.
Michael O. Leavitt served under President George W. Bush as Secretary of Health and Human Services from 2005 to 2009. During his three terms as Governor of Utah, the state was recognized six times as one of the U.S.’s best-managed. A seasoned diplomat, Leavitt led U.S. delegations to more than 50 countries, conducting negotiations on matters related to health, the environment and trade. Leavitt also served on the Homeland Security Advisory Council.
Festus Mogae was President of Botswana from 1998 to 2008. He won the 2008 Ibrahim Prize for Achievement in African leadership in recognition of his record of good governance as President. Earlier in his career, he occupied posts at the International Monetary Fund and the Bank of Botswana
