Co-investing with the Global Fund New Measures at the Global Fund to improve Private Sector Engagement The Global Fund recognizes that in order to improve program reach and effectiveness, the role of the private sector and civil society in Global Fund processes must be strengthened Dual Track Financing System: The Global Fund recognizes that the private sector can and should play a role in the development of proposals and the implementation and oversight of grants at the country level. Hence, commencing from round 8, the Global Fund allows the flexibility of a country having more than one Principal recipient notably from the non-governmental sector.
Co-investing with the Global Fund Partner in Implementation Principal Recipient (PR) from the private sector As a result of DTF the number of PS PRs is increasing; however the actual number remains small. Round 8: 7 applications proposed a private sector PR (5 from Africa) for the implementation of 12 proposals; only 3 were accepted (by the TRP): Ghana, Brazil, Sri Lanka. Round 9: 11 applicants proposed a private sector PR, but only 2 were accepted: Société d’eau et d’électricité industrielle du Bénin (SEIB) and Haiti. Cote d’Ivoire: CNPS (Caisse Nationale de Prévoyance Sociale) (PPP approved but rejected later) The private sector is a sub-recipient (SR) to a civil society or government PR: business coalition play an important role in representing the private sector by scaling up programs ECOSIDA (Mozambique), SABCOHA(South Africa), MBCA(Malawi)

Co-investing with the Global Fund Conclusions High level political commitment is essential for PPP to be implemented Current thinking on co’investments have rapidly moved from being restricted to drugs,health service to a vast range from logistics, transport, advertising to management information systems. Co-investments have proven to provide equitable access to health services in resource constrained settings Involvement of businesses in national strategies is crucial Most countries have fully operational business organizations but their efforts need to be coordinated :labour organizations have an important advocacy and implementation role
