Global Fund is ‘punished by donors for fighting corruption’

The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria is being punished by donors for being tough  on corruption, says the Fund’s Inspector General.

Recent media reports about corruption in the Global Fund have triggered a sudden decision by three donors - Denmark, Germany and Ireland - to freeze support.

The reports are based on the findings of the Global Fund’s own audits. Much of the information has been in the public domain since last fall. (See DT 14/10)
