The Global Fund is a partnership designed to accelerate the end of AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria as epidemics. As an international organization, the Global Fund mobilizes and invests more than US$4 billion a year to support programs run by local experts in more than 100 countries. In partnership with governments, civil society, technical agencies, the private sector and people affected by the diseases, we are challenging barriers and embracing innovation.
To determine how best to invest financing for highest impact, the Global Fund taps into an independent pool of leading experts called the Technical Review Panel(TRP), who review and assess funding requests submitted by countries for technical merit and strategic focus. In addition to supporting the financing of effective programs, the Technical Review Panel serves as an advisory body to the Board to support the development and implementation of the organization’s strategy.
The Global Fund is currently seeking new panel members to serve a four-year term, starting in 2020, with expertise in one or more of the following:
- Resilient and sustainable systems for health (RSSH)
- Human rights and gender (HRG)
- Strategic investment, sustainable financing and transition
In addition, expertise in the following cross-cutting areas is highly desirable:
- Challenging operating environments
- Community systems strengthening
- Program management
The TRP is a group of approximately 100 experts in public health who commit a minimum of 4 weeks of their time a year, including working remotely or in Geneva to review Global Fund funding requests.
