Let me know when the updated version of the UNDP Health Systems website is online:


UNDP in partnership with governments, Civil Society Organizations, the Global Fund and other partners supports and strengthens systems for health, including national responses to HIV, Tuberculosis and malaria. The objective is to ensure access to quality health services for all, and enable all those living or affected by the diseases to live healthy, productive lives.

UNDP’s Global Fund portfolio has saved millions of lives in support to countries. Expanding opportunities for children and young adults in their most productive years who would have otherwise succumbed to the diseases.

Grant performance

UNDP consistently outperforms other implementers of Global Fund grants. 48% percent of UNDP grants are currently rated A1 or A2 (“exceed” or “meet expectations”) by the Global Fund compared to 35% percent for all grants. This is despite the fact that UNDP is operating in some of the most difficult country contexts.

A1 - Exceeding expectations,  A2 - Meeting expectations,  B1 - Adequate,  B2 - Inadequate but potential demonstrated,  C - Unacceptable,  NR - Not rated
