Media release: The Basel Institute appointed Integrity Monitor for Mosquito Net Procurement

The Global Fund is an international financing institution that seeks to accelerate the end of AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria as epidemics. The Geneva based organization has selected the Basel Institute on Governance to serve as Integrity Monitor for the procurement of long-lasting insecticide nets (LLINs) financed by the Global Fund.

The role of the Integrity Monitor is to facilitate transparency and accountability in the LLIN bidding and registration process, as well as to identify and promote industry best practices in reducing corruption risks through anti-corruption Collective Action. The project is the first of its kind conducted by the Global Fund, which has obtained commitment from the world’s leading manufacturers of LLINs to participate in an Integrity Pact for global LLIN procurement.

The Integrity Monitor will work with the companies to identify best practices for their compliance programmes; develop guidance for the implementation of the Integrity Pact and over time, seek to develop a multi-stakeholder approach for the expansion of this work. The Basel Institute will be working with the Spanish consultancy Blomeyer & Sanz as well as Global LLIN Donors and the manufacturers. The work will commence in October 2016.
