Global Fund to Fight Aids, Tuberculosis and Malaria
Ivan Lewis (Shadow Secretary of State for International Development; Bury South, Labour)
To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what criteria he plans to apply when deciding the funding to allocate to the Global Fund to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria for the period from 2011 to 2013.
Andrew Mitchell (The Secretary of State for International Development; Sutton Coldfield, Conservative)
The Global Fund has developed a “Consolidated Transformation Plan” which brings together existing reforms and the recommendations of a recent High Level Panel Report. These time-bound reforms are intended to ensure that the Fund improves its performance and better meets the needs of poor people affected by the three diseases.
The UK's readiness to increase its funding to the Global Fund is dependent on the extent to which it is able to take forward these reforms and deliver on the recommendations of the Panel's Report in implementing its strategy.
