GF/B21/EDP16


Approved by the Board on:
15 August 2010


Approval of Equatorial Guinea Continuity of Services request (GNQ-405-G01-H)

The Board acknowledges that, while Equatorial Guinea is classified as high income country according to the World Bank income classification and therefore no longer eligible for Global Fund support, the CCM requires additional time to mobilize resources for the Continuity of Services (CoS) for the 2,330 patients currently on life-saving treatment. The Board therefore approves the funding from the Phase 2 undisbursed funds of the Equatorial Guinea Round 4 HIV grant in the amount of USD 765,674, for the one year period from 1 July 2010 until 30 June 2011, with the understanding that not later than 31 December 2010, the CCM will submit to the Global Fund a transition plan identifying how the patients on treatment will be funded from government and other sources after the end of the one year period approved for CoS.
