02 Mar UK Minister Says Global Fund Has “excellent track record” and will receive increased funding
Press Release, The Global Fund
Secretary of State for International Development Andrew Mitchell told the House of Commons (Lower House of Parliament) that a far-reaching review of 43 multilateral organizations found that 9 of them, including the Global Fund, were assessed as giving “very good value to the UK taxpayer.”
“We will increase funding because they have an excellent track record for delivering results,” said Mitchell.
The Multilateral Aid Review (MAR) found that the Global Fund played a critical role in delivering health-related Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and was likely to remain a key financier of existing and new approaches to tackling AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.
