C³ Public Sector: Developing capacity on accounting in the Ministry of Health and other recipient entities
In 2017 the C³ Unit for Better Learning and the Public Finance Department at GFA jointly developed a set of standardized training modules focusing on public fund management. This was done in the context of GFA´s Fiscal Agent Services for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (the Global Fund).
In TGF projects capacity building measures on accounting and financial management for involved stakeholders are key, so as to mitigate the risk of fraud or misuse of grant funds. Hence, accountability, transparency and operational efficiency in the financial management of the funds are crucial to foster sustainability. Therefore, it is a common goal to strengthen the understanding of the Global Fund’s requirements and the professionalism in the financial execution of the Global Fund grants.
GFA’s concept for capacity building is based on continuous accompaniment and improvement of the national entities’ capabilities, tailored to the national entities specific needs. To complement the daily coaching on the job, training modules covering key topics were developed and course prototypes tested in Nigeria (three courses with 73 participants) and East Timor (three courses with 84 participants) throughout the year.
