Independent Evaluation Panel

The Independent Evaluation Panel (IEP) is an advisory and oversight panel that reviews the quality and independence of Global Fund independent evaluation activities. The IEP is independent from the Global Fund Secretariat and accountable to the Global Fund Board through the Board’s Strategy Committee. The IEP membership consists of experienced evaluation experts from a wide range of academic and public sector backgrounds. In its oversight role, the IEP recommends improvements to evaluation methodologies, procedures and quality assurance mechanisms, as well as innovative ways to strengthen the rigor, conduct and use of evaluations, and improvements to knowledge-sharing and the dissemination of evaluation evidence.


The recruitment and selection of IEP members is managed by the Strategy Committee of the Global Fund Board through a public call for applications, using an open, transparent and criteria-based process.
