As with any UNDP-managed programme, UNDP’s Programme and Operations Policies and Procedures (POPP) governs human resources management of UNDP staff and affiliates in the context of Global Fund and other health project implementation.

The guidance provided in this section of the Manual does not replace the POPP; it simply provides supplemental guidance specific to UNDP-managed Global Fund projects, as well as lessons learnt and practice pointers in human resource management throughout the start-up, grant-making and signing, and implementation processes of the grant life cycle.
