Decision on the Secretariat’s Recommendation on Funding Unfunded Quality Demand from the 2017-2019 Allocation Period
Notes the Secretariat’s review of the items on the 2017- 2019 allocation period’s register of Unfunded Quality Demand (“UQD”) in accordance with the prioritization framework approved by the Strategy Committee through GF/SC04/DP02;
Approves the additional incremental funding recommended for certain UQD of the following country disease components: (i) Burundi Malaria, and (ii) Philippines TB, as listed in Table 2 of GF/B39/ER12, based on available funding approved by the Audit and Finance Committee;
Affirms the additional incremental funding approved under this decision (a) increases the upper-ceiling amount that may be available for the relevant implementation period of each country disease component’s constituent grants, (b) is subject to the availability of funding, and (c) shall be committed in annual tranches; and
Delegates to the Secretariat authority to redistribute the overall upper-ceiling of funding available for each country disease component among its constituent grants, provided that the Technical Review Panel (the “TRP”) validates any redistribution that constitutes a material change from the program and funding request initially reviewed and recommended by the TRP.
