Technical Review Panel


The Global Fund Board relies on the Technical Review Panel to ensure that Global Fund investments are strategically focused and aligned to the Global Fund’s strategy. Here, we describe how experts are recruited to serve as Technical Review Panel members and carry out its work.

Member qualifications

The Technical Review Panel's expertise spans HIV, TB, malaria, resilient and sustainable systems for health, community systems strengthening, human rights, gender, strategic investments, sustainable financing and transition, challenging operating environments and emergency settings.

In addition to sound and up-to-date overall technical expertise, experts must have broad experience and understanding of:

  • Program development

The Global Fund looks for candidates who will add diversity in terms of their areas of expertise as well as their geographical and sectoral experience.

Recruitment process

The Technical Review Panel is replenished periodically and as the need arises. The recruitment and selection of members is managed by the Board’s Strategy Committee, using an open, transparent and criteria-based process through a public call for applications. The latest recruitment was in 2017.
