Board Decisions


Approved by the Board on: 09 May 2018

Potential Engagement with Non-eligible Countries in Crisis

  1. The Board acknowledges that a health crisis may emerge in an ineligible non-high income country that could have an adverse impact on the global response against HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and/or malaria, and that the health crisis may be of such a magnitude that the Global Fund should consider providing support; and
  2. Based on the recommendation of the Strategy Committee, the Board requests the Secretariat, in consultation with relevant partners, to present potential investment cases meeting the criteria described in GF/B39/03 – Revision 1 to the Strategy Committee for review and recommendation to the Board. Any such proposals shall also include options for how the proposed investment should be funded.

Budgetary Implications

Budgetary implications: This decision is likely to have future budgetary implications for country funding and/or Secretariat OPEX, but the actual amounts will depend on the specific size of the crisis and potential response. These will be detailed in any proposals that result from this decision.
