Board

Committees

The Board of the Global Fund has three committees that serve to provide specific expertise in the following subject areas:

Audit and Finance Committee

Its role is to ensure optimal performance of the corporate and financial operations of the Global Fund. It:

  • Provides oversight of the financial management of the Global Fund’s resources
  • Provides oversight of the internal and external audit functions
  • Oversees the investigation functions of the Global Fund

Ethics and Governance Committee

This committee ensures that the Global Fund and its stakeholders adhere to appropriate standards of ethical behavior. It:

  • Oversees implementation of the procedures and operations related to the Global Fund’s governance structure and its core governance functions

Strategy Committee

Its purpose is to:

  • Provide oversight of the strategic direction of the Global Fund
  • Ensure the optimal impact and performance of its investments in health

Committee members are drawn from the membership of the constituencies that make up the Board. The Board Member, the Alternate, or any other member of the constituency can serve on any of the committees. Committee members serve for a term of two years.

Each committee has delegated authority from the Board to perform decision-making, advisory and oversight in their specific areas. Coordination of the work of the committees and the Board is managed by the Coordinating Group.

Selection of committee membership is the responsibility of the Coordinating Group. Every two years, the Chair and Vice-Chair of the Board will solicit nominations from the constituencies and, together with the rest of the Coordinating Group, will appoint committee members, ensuring a balance between donor countries, implementing countries, civil society, the private sector and foundations.
