Message to Board Members from Chair and Vice Chair

09 August 2013

The Chair and Vice Chair of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria have written to Board members to inform them where they believe they should focus as Board Chair and Vice Chair over the next two years.

"We trust that this note will be a helpful guide on where we see our key areas of focus across the next two years," Board Chair Nafsiah Mboi and Vice Chair Mireille Guigaz said.

The message sets out principles that should underlie their work in the coming two years, including focusing the work of the Board at a strategic level, and working to build complementarity between the work of the Board and Secretariat.

The priorities are set around the core functions of the Board leadership: setting strategic direction; enhancing effective governance and oversight; committing and managing financial resources; assessing organizational performance; risk management; and mobilizing resources and strengthening partnerships.

"An urgent priority for the Board in 2013 is sharing responsibility to lead the Fund's replenishment campaign to ensure appropriate resourcing of the Fund across the 2014 - 2016 period," the message adds.
