The Technical Evaluation Reference Group (TERG) is an independent evaluation advisory group, accountable to the Board of The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis & Malaria for ensuring independent evaluation of the Global Fund business model, investments and impact.
The TERG oversees independent evaluations on behalf of the Board and its Committees into areas where, for reasons of objectivity and credibility, independence in management and oversight is essential. The TERG also identifies areas which, in its opinion, require independent evaluations. These independent evaluations are complementary to the evaluation functions performed by the Secretariat or the grantees, and to the assurance function performed by the Office of the Inspector General.
The TERG also advises the Global Fund Secretariat on evaluation approaches and practices, independence, reporting procedures and other technical and managerial aspects of monitoring and evaluation at all levels.
Membership of the TERG is drawn from a range of stakeholders, including practitioners, research institutions, academics, from donor and recipient countries, and non-governmental organizations. Members of the TERG are appointed by the Board of the Global Fund. They serve in their personal capacities, do not represent their employers, governments or organizations and institutionally independent of the Secretariat, the Board and Board Committees.
The TERG is chaired by Dr Mickey Chopra, Chief of Health at UNICEF.
The TERG Vice-Chairs are Dr Wim Van Damme, Professor of Public Health and Health Policy at the Institute of Tropical Medicine, Antwerp, Belgium, and Dr Viroj Tangcharoensathien, Director of the International Health Policy Program, at the Ministry of Public Health of Thaïland.
From 2007-2009, the TERG provided oversight for the Five-Year Evaluation and presented the final report, the Synthesis Report [ PDF - 1 MB ] to the Global Fund Board at the 19th Board meeting in May 2009.
The TERG has significantly contributed to the Global Fund’s Evaluation Strategy for 2012-2016 and is preparing the 2014 Twelve-Year evaluation of the Global Fund.
