The Project

The Global Fund is a worldwide movement to defeat HIV, TB and malaria and ensure a healthier, safer, and more equitable future for all. In order to eliminate these three diseases, formal and community health systems and responses need to be strengthened. As such, the Global Fund’s 2023-2028 strategy aims to maximise people-centered, integrated approaches which enable the development of resilient and sustainable systems for health (RSSH).

To better understand, operationalise, and measure its investment in health systems strengthening, the Global Fund’s Strategy Committee and Technical Evaluation Reference Group (TERG) mapped its RSSH investments and reviewed the tools and approaches used to monitor and track them. The TERG and the World Health Organization (WHO) identified three specific objectives for this activity. These were 1) to critically evaluate what differentiates RSSH investments from the Global Fund’s other areas of investment; 2) to estimate the degree of investment in health systems at global and country level; and 3) to understand how these investments align with domestic and government investments and national health priorities.

Our Role

Starting in June 2022, LAMP Development worked in partnership with ITAD to conduct the Global Fund RSSH investments mapping exercise. Following early submission of an inception report, the LAMP-ITAD team engaged with stakeholders from TERG and WHO to jointly refine the key mapping questions and methodologies. Between September and October 2022, LAMP and ITAD collated and analysed data. This was followed by a validation workshop with the Global Fund Secretariat, TERG, and WHO in November 2022, in which the emerging findings and recommendations were discussed. LAMP and ITAD delivered a final report which built on the feedback and discussions of the consultative process.

Impact

  • The strategic and operational recommendations developed by the LAMP-ITAD team are now being prioritised by the Global Fund to help ensure that its RSSH investments are delivering the greatest impact in the fight against HIV, TB and malaria.

Client Testimonial

  • The analysis LAMP made on the case study was very useful for the implementing partners and for users of the report to see the impact of the interventions in monetary and statistical terms. The benefits of both interventions were clearly seen. LAMP were very proactive in data collection and were flexible with regards to challenges in obtaining required data; they were quick to come up with alternative methods to capture data and were able to make use of the limited data available.

    - Crown Agents
  • Lamp Development provided expertise to help shape our VFM Approach. They worked in a collaborative style, built a strong working relationship with staff and produced practical outputs which is exactly what we asked for. The outputs have already been used by our Project Managers to improve how we report VfM within on-going projects and words have also been included to increase our VfM scoring within bids. Thanks for all the help!

  • We worked with LAMP for an evaluation of an adolescent suicide prevention project in Kazakhstan. LAMP were very professional in defining the scope of the cost-effectiveness stream of work, in dealing with the client, and in delivering within a quick time-frame when the data did arrive! We would work with them again. 

    - Health Team Leader, Itad
  • LAMP’s project objectives were achieved, and we received positive feedback from DFID on the final output. The report led to some interesting discussions with DFID and between partners. The number-crunching and the organization of data was excellent. I think we worked very well together. Jennifer and Susie were always prompt and responsive.

    - Senior manager – M&E, KEEP
  • The framework was very well received by the team. The engagement was carried out in a planned, consultative and thorough manner.  LAMP’s communication style, interaction with partners, response timeliness are all excellent.
