Together with the Basel Institute on Governance our firm has been appointed Integrity Monitor for procurement of Long-Lasting Insecticidal Nets (LLINs) in the fight against malaria. The work started in October 2016.
The Global Fund is an international partnership organisation designed to accelerate the end of AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria as epidemics. 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.
As Integrity Monitor, we 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.
