Full and Fast-track Funding Requests

Implementing countries who wish to apply for C19RM funding can consult with their Global Fund Country Teams when further donor funding becomes available. Available types of funding requests include:

  • Full Funding Requests: These enable countries to submit an ambitious funding request for prioritized programmatic needs, for an amount including both the designated C19RM Base Allocation and indicated C19RM Above Base Allocation. Since all countries may receive some C19RM Above Base Allocation funding, an ambitious request is strongly encouraged.
  • Fast-track Funding Requests: These enable countries to expedite fulfilment of urgent procurement requirements, which includes PPE, diagnostics and therapeutics (including oxygen) and the costs relating to the effective deployment of these health products. Countries can submit up to half of their overall C19RM Base Allocation request through this optional approach.


Applications must be endorsed by all Country Coordinating Mechanism members. In addition, COVID-19 control and containment interventions must be endorsed by the national COVID-19 response coordinating body.
