Approved by the Board on: 16 December 2005
Decision Point 1:
Mindful of the current distribution of the geographic diversity of the Technical Review Panel pool, the Board requests the Portfolio Committee to recommend for approval at the 13th Board meeting one additional Alternate Member of the Technical Review Panel for each area of expertise (HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and cross-cutting).
Decision Point 2:
The Board authorizes the Chair and Vice Chair of the Technical Review Panel to add temporarily up to four members, which shall be selected from existing Alternate Members, to the membership of the TRP for a given round of proposals, where appropriate in light of the number of proposals and their distribution among categories.
