The Global Fund Board appointed a new Executive Director at its meeting on 14 November 2017. See our news release for more information:
The Global Fund is a 21st-century partnership organization designed to accelerate the end of AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria as epidemics. Founded in 2002, the Global Fund is a partnership between governments, civil society, the private sector and people affected by the diseases.
The Global Fund raises and invests nearly US$4 billion a year to support programs run by local experts in more than 100 countries. Programs supported by the Global Fund have saved more than 22 million lives.
The Global Fund recently launched a new strategy 2017-2022 to invest for maximum impact. The strategy is aligned fully with partner plans and the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The strategy aims to support countries in implementing ambitious efforts and building sustainable and resilient health systems, securing the gains as countries transition from Global Fund support. It includes efforts to mobilize resources from traditional and new sources and via innovative financing strategies, and support increased domestic investment.
As the leader of the Global Fund’s Secretariat, the Executive Director manages a complex and highly able team, oversees resource mobilization, and represents the Global Fund to a range of external audiences.
The process for selecting an Executive Director was detailed in a series of updates from the Board’s Executive Director Nomination Committee. See our Updates page.
