A $22 billion global health fund that's been criticized by donors and skeptics since disclosing alleged fraud in its grants must adopt tougher financial safeguards, an independent panel recommended Monday.
The Republican National Committee failed to report more than $7 million in debt to the Federal Election Commission in recent months - a move that made its bottom line appear healthier than it is heading into the midterm elections and that also raises the prospect of a hefty fine.
How best to curb fraud and abuse in the Medicaid and Medicare programs? It's a multibillion-dollar question. State and federal prosecutors say they are bracing to crack down on the problem, and stepping up enforcement means increased resources.
"It makes clear that the Global Fund has to shift now from an organization that was responding to an emergency to one that is capable of a sustained response. And it lays out a road map for that change," he told The Associated Press.
