Thematic Review now available on community healthcare in five countries

19 January 2021

The latest Thematic Review of Global Fund Community Health Investments aims to strengthen understanding of the Global Fund’s current investments in community health care and how they contribute to scaling-up effective interventions for HIV, TB and malaria. It draws on in-depth reviews conducted in Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Liberia, Mali and Mozambique.

The Thematic Review is aimed at identifying and documenting successes and challenges in the planning, implementation and monitoring of community health care, including: 

  • Assessing partnership and linkages between health facilities and communities for strengthening referrals and retention in care
  • Assessing the quality of community health care delivery
  • Assessing how community-based care data is gathered, reported and used for programmatic decision-making
  • Generating information and evidence that could be used by the Global Fund to take successful community-based implementation practices to scale.

It was commissioned by the Global Fund in 2019 and conducted by the Dakar-based NGO ENDA Santé.
