In Uganda, there was an unanticipated upsurge in malaria cases in 2019, so the Prospective Country Evaluation team added an evaluation question on whether and how Global Fund policies and structures enabled the country to respond.In 2020, the Grant Portfolio Solutions team at the Global Fund requested inputs about challenges related to Global Fund monitoring and reporting processes and opportunities for improvement.
Findings indicated that several flexible aspects of the Global Fund business model, including modifications to procurement and supply chain plans, facilitated the country’s response to the malaria upsurge.The Prospective Country Evaluation was able to quickly incorporate new evaluation questions into the evaluation scope and shared cross-country findings to inform the Secretariat’s revised reporting guidance.
