Kenya Red Cross Society- Global Fund program received an A1 rating from Global Funds’ Performance Ratings on grants management in the last reporting period. Every few months, the Global Fund assigns each grant a rating that measures the performance of that grant over the past few month. To achieve maximum impact, the Global Fund uses a performance-based funding system, which allows it to sustain and accelerate the gains in the fight against the three diseases. These ratings are A1 (“Exceeds expectations”), A2 (“Meets expectations”), B1 (“Adequate”), B2 (“Inadequate but potential demonstrated”) or C (“Unacceptable”). The Global Fund’s system of performance-based funding was developed to ensure that money is spent on delivering services directly to the men, women and children living with the diseases. At the same time, it provides a platform for countries to demonstrate that they can convert financing into results. And results – proven performance – are critical to raising funding from donors.
Performance-based funding ensures accountability, efficiency and effectiveness. We thank all our stakeholders for their continuous efforts to ensure that people at risk or living with HIV in Kenya are able to access Global Fund resources in order to access HIV testing and counseling, treatment, care and support including previously excluded key populations.
