Notes

(1) The Burkina Faso Round 6 HIV and Romania Round 6 TB proposals were approved in Euro and the respective CCMs have requested Phase 2 funding in Euro. To give the Board the most up-to-date picture of what the EUR/USD equivalent is at the time of the Phase 2 submission, the recommended incremental funding amount has been computed in USD using the rate of exchange that is published by the International Monetary Fund on its website on 4 September 2009, 2009 (Euro1 = US$1.4262).

(2) The column “CCM Requested Amount” is provided for reference only. The figures with the superscript (2) in this column represent CCM requested amounts which exceeded the limit of the original Phase 2 amount (i.e. [Lifetime proposal amount (adjusted)] – [Phase 1 grant agreement amount]. The Secretariat received comments from the Private Sector Delegation. The comments will be taken into account during grant negotiations.Next Steps: The Secretariat will begin negotiations immediately for the extension of the grants listed in Schedule A.
