The evaluations commissioned by the Global Fund are divided into two categories:
Strategic evaluations: These evaluations are focused on the implementation of the Global Fund Strategy. Referred to as “strategic reviews”, they assess overall progress towards the goals, objectives and implementation of the Strategy.
Thematic and programmatic evaluations: Previously referred to as thematic reviews, these evaluations focus on thematic and programmatic areas that contribute to achieving the objectives and sub-objectives of the Strategy. The scope of these evaluations can range from topics that are relevant across programs and grants, such as gender or human rights, to specific aspects of the business model and functionality of the Global Fund.
