Securing the Coalition's future
13th December 2007
A key objective of the Coalition's Strategic Plan is to ensure the sustainability of the Coalition and its added value. To that end, the Secretariat has contracted former GAVI Alliance senior staff member, Bo Stenson, to develop a multi-year financial sustainability plan. The plan will address the sustainability of the Secretariat and the RHInterchange (RHI) and the feasibility of an independent fund through which other strategic opportunities might be pursued.
Formerly with Swedish SIDA, Stenson brings a wealth of first-hand experience, having served as Acting Deputy Executive Secretary for the GAVI Alliance. He is also currently developing a strategic and sustainability plan for the Partnership for Maternal, Child and Newborn Health. Stenson will review and synthesize relevant experience from other health partnerships; and will conduct interviews with Coalition members. In October, Stenson travelled to Brussels, where he met with the Co-Chairs, Secretariat staff, and other Coalition partners based in Brussels. The final report will be submitted to the Executive Committee in February 2008. Contact the Secretariat for more details.
