Emerging Lessons from Global Fund Programme Implementation in Zimbabwe

In 2013 Zimbabwe was one of the pilot countries invited to apply for funding for the HIV disease component under the Global Fund New Funding Model (NFM). This was heralded as a successful pilot for the NFM and is being used as a best practice case in other countries. Zimbabwe is also applying for funding for Tuberculosis and Malaria programming as part of the 2014 full roll-out of the NFM.


This Case Study draws on information collected through review of achievements, stakeholder interviews, and observations, with the aim to present the lessons learned and forward looking perspective on the capacity development component of the Global Fund Round 8 Grants in Zimbabwe and the preparation for transition of the Principal Recipient role from UNDP to national entities. The Case Study also provides a set of recommendations to further build the capacity of national entities in Zimbabwe and enhance the implementation Global Fund programming under the NFM.
