IMPORTANT NOTE:

  • THIS IS A LOCAL POSITION FOR WHICH ONLY THOSE APPLICANTS WHO POSSESS THE RIGHT TO LIVE AND WORK IN PAKISTAN WILL BE CONSIDERED. 



The Global Fund does not have a country-level presence outside of its central Secretariat. Instead, it hires third party Local Fund Agents (LFAs) to oversee, verify and report on grant performance. LFAs are selected through a competitive bidding process.

The Global Fund normally has one LFA engaged in each country where its funds are disbursed. The LFA would give the Global Fund access to local knowledge that may be relevant to the performance. The Global Fund adheres to the principles of performance-based funding in making disbursement decisions. The aim is to ensure that investments are made only where funding is managed and spent effectively on programs that achieve impact in fighting the relevant diseases (HIV, tuberculosis and malaria).The LFA is thus a crucial part of the Global Fund’s system of oversight and risk management. Its principal role is to provide informed and independent professional advice about the capacity of fund/grant recipients to manage the implementation of activities funded by grant funds(including the recipient’s capacity to oversee implementation of activities by implementing parties), to make recommendations concerning periodic disbursement of grant funds, to review grant performance when a grant is being considered for renewal, and to provide the donor on an on-going basis with relevant information on issues or risks which might affect grant performance.

The LFA team is expected to have an up-to-date and comprehensive understanding of relevant diseases, how they are prevented, transmitted and treated, and their impact on a specific country. The team assesses the recipients’ institutional and health/programmatic capacities and arrangements to ensure adequate health expertise (HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and/or malaria) in the implementation of the donor grant funds. The LFA team also determines whether the recipient has adequate infrastructure and information systems to support grant implementation, including the monitoring of performance of implementing partners and outsourced entities in a timely and accountable manner. The donor has recently adopted an intensive risk management approach to services with enhanced effort toward in-depth verifications and reporting. The identification of financial and programmatic risks with ongoing updates shall be provided the donor with special attention to the overall context of the relevant diseases and grant implementation in country.

The Programme Health and M&E Analyst will be based in Pakistan and report to the LFA Team Leader. The incumbent will be responsible for the technical area of health and disease (HIV, TB and malaria), and responsible for ensuring that all programme/M&E work is of high quality and completed within the time frame set by the client. The incumbent will also be required to travel in-country when necessary.
