The Pandemic Fund is a collaborative partnership among donor countries, co-investor countries (potential implementing country governments), foundations and civil society organizations (CSOs). It is hosted by the World Bank with WHO as technical lead.
The governing and administrative bodies of The Pandemic Fund are the Governing Board, the Technical Advisory Panel (TAP), the Secretariat, and the Trustee. The Implementing Entities (IEs) will support implementation of The Pandemic Fund-financed projects and activities. A broad set of stakeholders, including donors, Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), potential implementing country governments, and other partners were engaged on the The Pandemic Fund’s design to ensure it reflected the fund’s commitment to inclusivity, equity and to operate with high standards of transparency and accountability.
The Governing Board
The Governing Board is the supreme governing body of The Pandemic Fund. The Governing Board, comprising of 21 voting members, reflects an equal balance of sovereign “contributors” (donors) and sovereign “co-investors” (countries that could receive funding); includes a voting seat for non-sovereign contributors (philanthropies/foundations); and two voting seats for CSOs. The Governing Board is led by Dr. Chatib Basri former Minister for Finance, Indonesia.
