Terms of reference for the mapping of accountability and audit arrangements of government-managed health programs in Mozambique
Background and context of the project
Aidspan, the independent observer of the Global Fund to Fight HIV, Tuberculosis and Malaria (www.aidspan.org), is implementing the third phase of a project titled ‘Enhancing the capacity of Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) to perform finance, compliance, and programmatic audit of Global Health Initiatives (GHIs) supported programs.’ The project aims to support and reinforce Public Finance Management, strengthening the capacity of seven SAIs, which are the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Malawi, Mozambique, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zimbabwe, and help them advocate for their adequate resourcing to increase accountability of government-managed programs supported by the Global Fund and GAVI to improve performance of programs.
The first phase occurred between 2018 and 2020 when we trained eight sub-Saharan African SAIs to conduct financial and programmatic audits of Global Fund grants. These SAIs are from Burkina Faso, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, and Togo. We scaled up this initiative in the second phase and trained five additional SAIs, which are the SAIs of Ethiopia, Lesotho, Namibia, Nigeria, and South Africa, in 2021. In addition, we retrained the SAIs of Kenya and Malawi. Besides SAIs, the training targeted internal auditors of state Principal Recipients (PRs) of Global Fund grants and representatives of Country Coordinating Mechanisms (CCMs).
