To support the Global Fund in financing effective programs, the Board relies on an independent panel of international experts of health and development.
The Technical Review Panel (TRP) consists of the Chair and two Vice Chairs, and a maximum of 40 experts. Each expert is appointed by the Board for a period of up to four Rounds. The current Chair of the TRP is Shawn Baker (USA). Dr George Gotsadze (Georgia) and Dr Lucie Blok (Netherlands) are the TRP Vice-Chairs.
The composition of the TRP covers expertise in HIV/AIDS, TB, malaria and health systems and development (cross-cutting) issues. Balance in terms of gender, regional representation and a mix of sectoral experience are taken into consideration in the composition of the panel.
The TRP reviews eligible grant proposals for technical merit according to soundness of approach, feasibility and potential for sustainability and impact. Based on this review, the TRP makes funding recommendations to the Board.
The TRP provides its comments in writing to applicants in the 'TRP Review Form'. This document outlines the overall recommendation and the main strengths and weaknesses for each component, and requests clarifications from applicants recommended for funding (see TRP Clarifications).
