Minimum Standards for participation, transparency, and accountability in GFF

Global Financing Facility

The Global Financing Facility (GFF) has established minimum standards of inclusiveness and transparency that all country platforms are expected to adhere to.

AHBN and Population Action International drafted a position paper suggesting specific ways in which these minimum standards could be strengthened:

RAISING THE BAR: Recommendations to Strengthen the GFF Minimum Standards for Country Platforms to Enhance Participation, Transparency, and Accountability. This position paper proposes expanding on the existing principles of inclusiveness and transparency, and adding principles of independence and accountability.

This position paper fed into online consultations with AHBN members, the Reproductive Health Supplies Coalition’s GFF oversight group, and the PMNCH CSO constituency.

They then formed the basis of an in-person consultation with 45 representatives from 13 countries at the Global Financing Facility Learning Meeting, organized by the GFF Investors’ Group CSO representatives, with support from the Partnership for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health on 14 November 2015 in Nairobi, Kenya.
