The Multilateral Organisation Performance Assessment Network (MOPAN), 2017
“The Global Fund provides strong leadership for the response to HIV and AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria…. The Fund fully meets the requirements of an effective multilateral organization. It is fit for purpose and able to adapt to future needs.” This is the conclusion of an institutional assessment conducted by the Multilateral Organisation Performance Assessment Network, or MOPAN, a network of donor countries with a common interest in assessing the effectiveness of multilateral organisations. MOPAN gave the Global Fund top marks in organizational architecture, operating model, and financial transparency and accountability, and it noted that the Fund performed strongly against all 12 indicators. MOPAN also found that there is room for improvement, particularly in evidence-based results measurement and health systems strengthening (HSS).
