GF/B25/EDP03


Approved by the Board on:
19 December 2011


Approval of an exception to the standard methodology under the Continuity of Services Policy for quantification of eligible patients for the Mauritania Round 5 HIV Grant (MRT-506-G03-H) grant.

The Board notes the decision of the Phase 2 Panel to provisionally approve funding of a ceiling amount of USD 3,547,057 for two years for Continuity of Services for the Mauritania Round 5 HIV (MRT-506-G03-H) grant. The Board further notes that while incremental funding is not required due to sufficient funds within the expired grant, the Phase 2 Panel has approved Continuity of Services subject to approval by the Board of an exception to the standard methodology under the Continuity of Services Policy for quantification of eligible patients. Based upon the information presented by the Secretariat, the Board approves the proposed exception so as to permit financing for continuation of life-saving treatment for the 1,631 patients receiving treatment as of the Ending Date of the Grant.

This decision does not have material budgetary implications for the 2011 Operating Expenses Budget.
