The Global Fund Board relies on the Technical Review Panel (TRP) to ensure Global Fund investments are strategically focused and aligned to the Global Fund’s strategy for 2012-2016. The TRP consists of experts in HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, health systems, community systems and cross-cutting development issues. The primary function of the TRP is to review funding requests for technical merit and strategic focus and to make funding recommendations.
The TRP pool of experts is replenished from time to time. The recruitment and selection of TRP members is managed by the Board’s
Strategy, Investment and Impact Committee (SIIC) using an open, transparent and criteria-based process, through a public call for applications.
The Global Fund looks for candidates with expertise in HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria prevention, care and treatment, as well as expertise in cross-cutting and health systems areas applicable to program implementation in resource-constrained settings.
The following aspects are critical for being a TRP member:
The recruitment of experts in very specialized areas is avoided. This is done in order to continue to draw from senior experts who have an overall broad understanding of the diseases, programming at the country level, and key issues that impact implementation capacity.
