Project description

The Ministry of Health (MOH) of the Democratic Republic of the Congo benefits from the Global Fund grants intended to finance programs to fight against HIV/AIDS and Tuberculosis, and from GAVI Alliance grants for the strengthening of health systems and immunization campaigns in all their diversity. In order to optimize the management of health sector financing, the Ministry of Health created a support and management unit (CAGF) by Ministerial Order No. 1250/CAB/MINSP/075/2009 of 16 November 2009. The CAGF has been operational since 2011 and has mainly managed GAVI and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GF) funding.
PEV and SANRU are further Sub-Recipient only for GAVI and several National Program (PNLT, PNLS; PNLP, DSSP/DSNIS) are sub-recipients for the Global Fund only.
In addition, some DPS “Division Provinciale de la Santé” are also regional sub-recipients from GAVI and the Global Fund, under the oversight of the Fiscal Agent.

In order to assist the Ministry of Health in the management and correct accounting of the resources made available through the grants, the Global Fund and GAVI have selected GFA Consulting Group as Fiscal Agent.

For this ongoing project in DRC, we are now looking for a new Fiscal Agent Manager/Team leader to start soon (tbd).
