Georgetown researchers find link between Global Fund support and better governance

In a new research paper published in the Annals of Global Health, researchers from Georgetown’s O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law analyzed the impact of Global Fund financing on governance and development in countries over the past decade and a half.

They found that Global Fund support improves government accountability, control of corruption, political freedoms, regulatory quality, and rule of law. They also found Global Fund financing benefits overall adult mortality and human development.
