Memorandum of Understanding between UNAIDS and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria
The PCB welcomes the clear delineation of complementary roles and responsibilities between UNAIDS and the Global Fund. This includes recognition both of the Global Fund as an important new financing mechanism and of UNAIDS as a key source of strategic analysis, policy advice and technical expertise to help countries access the resources of the Global Fund. One of the central founding principles of the Global Fund is reliance on local development partners for the provision of policy and technical support to Country Coordinating Mechanisms, principal recipients and other national partners and processes. The PCB further recognizes that a strong Global Fund requires a strong UN.
