Global Fund Secretariat

The Global Fund Secretariat is responsible for day-to-day operations, including mobilizing resources from the public and private sectors, overseeing grant implementation, providing financial, legal and administrative support to the Global Fund Board, and reporting information on the Global Fund’s activities to the Board and the public.

After the Board has approved a proposal for funding, the Secretariat, through the Local Fund Agent (LFA), assesses the capacity of the nominated Principal Recipient (PR) (through a PR assessment) to manage the implementation of the activities funded under the grant. If the outcome of the assessment is satisfactory, the Secretariat enters into a Grant Agreement with the PR. The Secretariat is also responsible for making the annual funding decision during the lifetime of the grant.

The Global Fund website provides more information about the Secretariat.
