Former Auditor-General, Daniel Yao Domelevo, has been appointed to the Audit and Finance Committee of Global Fund.

The board approved his appointment, together with 11 others on the committee, on 4 May 2022.

Global Fund is a financing institution, headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland providing support to countries in the response to HIV, TB, and malaria and commits about US$4 billion a year to the various programs.

The work of the Global Fund is based on principles of partnership, country-ownership, performance-based financing, and transparency empowering implementers to lead the response to the three diseases, supported by a diverse range of partners in the health sector.

The Fund also makes significant investments in strengthening data systems and processes in countries to improve data availability and quality. Approximately 4% of the Global Fund’s total investment over the 2018-2020 cycle is expected to be devoted to strengthening data systems and measurement.

Domelevo’s forced leave and retirement

Domelevo was asked by the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, to proceed on accumulated leave.

On March 2, a day before Mr. Domelevo was scheduled to return from his controversial forced leave, the Audit Service Board questioned his nationality and age.

The Board claimed Mr. Domelevo should have retired in 2020 and that he was a Togolese.

The Audit Service Board, based its claims on records at the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) provided by the Auditor General.

His date of birth is said to be June 1, 1960, and not June 1, 1961.

Mr. Domelevo however refuted these claims in further correspondence.

The Presidency endorsed the retirement claims of the Audit Service Board and said it considered Mr. Domelevo retired.

“The President is of the view that you [Domelevo] have formally left office,” the letter from the presidency said in response to the date of birth concerns.

In a letter, the Presidency thanked him for his service.

Although critics and Civil Society Organisations said the President acted in bad faith, Nana Akufo-Addo said his decision was justified.
