Organizational Structure

The Global Fund Secretariat is responsible for:

  • Day-to-day operations
  • Providing support to implementers
  • The implementation of Global Fund strategies and policies
  • Fundraising and relationships with donors

The Secretariat includes nearly 1,300 staff, who are all based at our offices in Geneva. The Global Fund has no offices in other countries.

We are organized into a number of different teams. Although the largest department (in terms of the number of staff) is the Grant Management Division, all teams have a key role to play in supporting our efforts to serve the men, women and children affected by infectious diseases, with a focus on HIV, tuberculosis and malaria.

The Office of the Inspector General is independent of the Secretariat, although both offices are in the same location. The Inspector General reports directly to the Global Fund Board, as does the executive director.

The Office of the Inspector General conducts audits and investigations of Global Fund-supported programs and responds to allegations of fraud, abuse or human rights violations in those programs.
