Audit of Global Fund Grants in Côte d’Ivoire

26 March 2020

The Global Fund is Côte d’Ivoire’s major financing partner in the fight against malaria and tuberculosis. Grant implementation arrangements changed significantly in early 2018 with the setup of a program management unit (UCP) within the Ministry of Health, in response to challenges including difficulties in implementing RSSH activities. UCP’s governance and procurement functions need to improve, however. Its limited accountability for centralized functions does not help address bottlenecks and challenges in the procurement process.

The audit found good traceability of drugs received at central and peripheral level, and increasing grant focus on linkage to care and retention. There has been little progress against national malaria targets, however, and community-based malaria interventions need to be strengthened.
