Problem is that the GFATM and others often have to work with UN agencies (PNUD, … ) as Principal Recipient. Corruption is deeply embedded in all the multilateral institutions, is also getting into the EU institutions. Consequences of the mechanisms put in place to fight this inherent corruption are making these institutions heavy and inefficient in implementation. We have the best examples of this with the GF in the DR of Congo, where drugs and funding arrive late and equipment is never remitted. At the same time, these politically strong institutions tend to undermine the position of the often very efficient NGOs.
