ICRW conducted a two-year research and advocacy project to review the effectiveness of the Global Fund to Fight HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. Specifically, the project examined the inclusion of gender to strengthen decision making, operations and programs, and civil society’s participation in the Global Fund. ICRW recommends key action steps for how the Global Fund can improve its overall effectiveness by building gender expertise into its operations and programs, and strengthening civil society’s role in its decision making and governance. The recommendations and action points contained in this report build on and refine preliminary conclusions that ICRW developed in June 2004.
