Technical Evaluation Reference Group

The Technical Evaluation Reference Group (TERG) is an independent evaluation advisory group, accountable to the Global Fund Board through its Strategy Committee for ensuring independent evaluation of the Global Fund business model, investments and impact.

The Technical Evaluation Reference Group oversees independent evaluations on behalf of the Board and its committees. The group also independently assesses and reports on the monitoring and evaluation work conducted by the Global Fund Secretariat, as well as provides it with independent advice on monitoring and evaluation matters.

Membership is drawn from a range of stakeholders, including practitioners, research institutions, academics, from donor and implementing countries and nongovernmental organizations. Voting members are appointed by the Board’s Strategy Committee. They serve in their personal capacities; do not represent their employers, governments or organizations; and are institutionally independent of the Secretariat, the Board and Board committees.

The reference group is chaired by Cindy Carlson, an independent consultant in public health and development management.
