The Global Fund Prospective Country Evaluation (PCE) is an embedded mixed-methods evaluation platform designed to examine the Global Fund business model, investments, and contribution to disease program outcomes and impact in eight countries. The PCE generates timely evidence to support program improvements and accelerate progress towards the objectives of the Global Fund 2017-2022 Strategy.
The 2020-2021 Annual Report presents findings from the grant cycle analysis which examined what, when, why, and how grants approved through the New Funding Model 2 (NFM2; 2017-2019 funding cycle) changed over time, including significant factors that influenced the implementation of changes to the original grant. Additionally, the report includes findings on how the NFM3 (2020-2022 funding cycle) grant design process was informed by lessons from NFM2.
The 2021 Extension Phase Report presents findings from a three-month extension of the PCE that focused on a deeper analysis of several areas within the grant cycle analysis, including: grant revision and lessons learnt from the Global Fund’s response to COVID-19, investments in health systems support and health systems strengthening, uptake of new RSSH coverage indicators, and drivers of budgetary shifts in RSSH and equity-related investments during NFM3 grant making.
