Approved by the Board on: 16 December 2005
The Board requests that the Secretariat make the necessary preparations for a Board decision, including a forecast of resources available, so that a Call for Proposals for Round 6 can be launched and proposals reviewed and approved in 2006. The Secretariat should furthermore work in close collaboration with relevant committees taking into account the established process to develop a strategy for the Global Fund.
These preparations should ensure the minimum of disruption to countries' ongoing work.
The Board notes that the mid-term review of the Replenishment process in June 2006 and other resource mobilization efforts are essential for securing adequate funding for Round 6.
