Eligibility Criteria, Counterpart Financing Requirements and Prioritization of Proposals for Funding from the Global Fund

  1. The Board refers to its decisions at the Twenty-Second Board Meeting entitled "Review of the Eligibility and Cost Sharing Policy" (GF/B22/DP8), "Measures associated with funding future proposals" (GF/B22/DP25), and "Launch of Round 11, the Second Wave of National Strategy Applications and a Health Systems Funding Platform Pilot" (GF/B22/DP26).

  2. The Board approves the document entitled "Policy on Eligibility Criteria, Counterpart Financing Requirements, and Prioritization of Proposals for Funding from the Global Fund" as set out in Attachment 1 (GF/B23/14) as the new policy governing these matters with the intention that this new policy shall apply to Round 11, the Second Wave of National Strategy Applications, the Health Systems Funding Platform Pilot and future funding opportunities.

  3. To give effect to the new Policy on Eligibility Criteria, Counterpart Financing Requirements, and Prioritization of Proposals for Funding from the Global Fund from Round 11 onwards, the Board decides as follows:

    a. To revoke the current policy on Income Level and Cost-Sharing Eligibility Criteria for Proposals for Funding from the Global Fund approved during the Sixteenth Board Meeting (GF/B16/DP18, Document GF/B16/7 Revision 1, Attachment 1) as amended at the Nineteenth Board Meeting (GF/B19/D13, GF/B19/DP14, GF/B19/DP15, Document GF/B19/05, Attachment 1); and

    b. To amend the Comprehensive Funding Policy and Related Board Decisions as approved at the Sixth Board Meeting (as amended at the Thirteenth Board Meeting and by GF/B15/27, GF/B20/DP9, EDP/B21/20 and GF/B22/DP22) by deleting paragraph 8 and replacing paragraph 7 b. of the Comprehensive Funding Policy with the following new sub-paragraph as follows:

    "7 b. If sufficient resources are not immediately available to approve all TRP-recommended proposals, proposals shall be prioritized in accordance with the Prioritization requirements set out in the "Policy on Eligibility Criteria, Counterpart Financing Requirements and Prioritization of Proposals for Funding from the Global Fund" (GF/BM23/DP6)."

Budgetary Implications

The budgetary implications of this decision are estimated at approximately US$ 630,000 for professional fees to provide support, as needed, for the collecting and reporting on spending data for Counterpart Financing requirements. This amount is not included in the 2011 Operating Expenses Budget.
