The 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.
This report presents findings synthesized across the eight PCE countries in 2020 presenting a comprehensive look at the Global Fund grant cycle. The PCE assessed how business model factors have facilitated or hindered the achievement of objectives during implementation of grants approved during the 2017-19 funding cycle, including around Resilient and Sustainable Systems for Health (RSSH), sustainability and equity, and whether lessons learned during current grants have informed the next funding cycle. The objective of this grant cycle analysis was to understand what, when, why, and how grant investments change over time, including significant factors that influenced the implementation of and changes to the original grant.
