Committees

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

Committees

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. Each committee's charter is available below for download.

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

While EGC members are nominated by Global Fund constituencies, they serve in their personal capacity.

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

Members

Committee members are drawn from the constituencies that make up the Board, serving a three-year term. Any member of a relevant Board constituency that has skills and experience related to the functions and responsibilities of their committee can serve. Each constituency is represented in at least one standing committee.

Chairs, Vice-Chairs and members are appointed by the Board, ensuring a balance between donor countries, implementing countries, civil society, the private sector and foundations. Appointments are made following a competency-based nomination process and a recommendation by the Chair and Vice-Chair of the Board.
