Approved by the Board on: 27 April 2016
1. The Board notes that under its previous decision in May 2009 (GF/B19/DP11) to create a non-voting seat on the Board to represent the constituency of key partners whose mission is directly related to the Global Fund and who are not currently represented on the Board (the "Partners Constituency"), any key partner that wishes to be represented on the Global Fund Board through the Partners Constituency should make a formal request to the Board for their inclusion in the Partners constituency.
2. The Board also notes that the Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health ("PMNCH") have fully responded to the criteria for accepting new constituency members, developed by the Partners Constituency, and have received unanimous support from the current Partners Constituency Members to be incorporated into the Constituency.
3. Based on the request submitted by the Partners Constituency, as outlined in GF/B35/27, the Board decides to invite the PMNCH to be a member of the Partners Constituency.
