Excerpt
SUMMARY 1. Global health initiatives (GHIs) are highly diverse in nature, scope and scale. Some are financing institutions, e.g. The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM), The Global Alliance for Vaccination and Immunization (GAVI). Most are partnerships for specific conditions which focus on advocacy, coordination, resource mobilization and technical support. This paper was prepared for the GAVI Board, but has relevance to other GHIs. 2. There is currently much debate about the role GHIs should and should not play in strengthening health systems. The debate has gained momentum for several reasons. There is increasing realization that without more support to help countries build health system capacity, the resources mobilized by GHIs are unlikely to reach their full potential. And unprecedented levels of external funding for health allows GHIs and others working to improve health in low-income countries to think differently about what they do. 3. In reality, GHIs already invest in health systems through the policies and activities they support. The question is therefore not whether GHIs invest, but in what they invest and how, given other actors, and their own mandates and ways of working.
