Concerns on delays in current grant making and implementation of the NFM

On August 12, 2015 members of the NGO developed country delegation (Ton Coenen, Beatrijs Stikkers (FOPC) and Peter van Rooijen) met with Mark Dybul and staff  to discuss the delegation’s concerns on delays in current grant making and implementation of the NFM, which are of concern in regard to not meeting our goal of investing for impact. The concern is around the possibility of having unmet needs while available money is not being used.

The meeting took place in follow-up of concerns expressed in a letter dated March 25, 2015, the Global Fund Secretariat’s (GFS) response in April, and followed by a telephone conversation in May. At the time, the delegation was disappointed as answers to the questions raised were not as detailed as hoped. Therefore, the purpose of this meeting was to have a broader and more in-depth exchange of thoughts on the basis of current operational developments and an assessment of recent financial data which confirmed the concerns expressed in March.
