    • The WGG was established during the Board Meeting in March “to identify and recommend for Board consideration possible changes in the Global Fund governance system with the intention of improving efficiency, effectiveness, unity and equity in conduct and management of the affairs of the Global Fund Board and its committees, in line with the mission, needs and work of the Global Fund”.
    • The working group was chaired by Ton Coenen on behalf of the Developed Country NGO delegation.
  • The current Global Fund Strategy ‘Investing for Impact’ runs from 2012-2016. This Board Meeting will initiate the 2017 – 2021 Strategy development process.
    • The next Global Fund Strategy will seek to answer questions for the era of the post-2015 development agenda.
    • The next replenishment of the Global Fund is planned for mid-2016, necessitating a strategy process that starts in early 2015 and continues to final approval of the 2017-2021 Strategy at the March 2016 Board meeting.
