Eligibility of Venezuela’s Malaria Component for the 2020-2022 Allocation Period

Based on the recommendation of the Strategy Committee described in GF/B41/ER04, the Board:

  1. Notes that the Eligibility Policy (GF/B39/02) provides that certain non-eligible countries may be recommended to be eligible for malaria in the event of a significant resurgence in malaria cases;
  2. Acknowledging the Secretariat and technical partners’ recommendation described in GF/B41/ER04, decides that Venezuela’s malaria component will be eligible for funding for the 2020-2022 allocation period due to significant resurgence; and
  3. Notes that any resultant grant(s) will be subject to and governed by existing policy and processes.

Budgetary Implications

If Venezuela receives an allocation, funds to come from available sources of funds for 2020-2022 country allocations, however there will likely be future budgetary implications on Secretariat OPEX.
