Global Fund TB grant performance status, December 2013The latest TB grant performance scores from the Global Fund are presented in the graph below.Of the 112 TB grants, 83% are performing above average.8 grants across 19 countries have a B2 rating, and one grant has received a C rating. TBTEAM is reaching out to partners in these countries as well as to WHO staff stationed there/in the region, to help improve performance.Grant ratings are a useful tool to monitor performance and take early action. Falling grant ratings can be an early indication of a grant getting into difficulty and grants with a B2, or C performance ratings suggest the need for urgent consideration of additional support needs for the grant.Upcoming events
