Approved by the Board on: 09 April 2020
The Board acknowledges the severe negative impact COVID-19 is having on country health systems and Global Fund programs to fight the three diseases. The Board agrees with the need for temporary flexibilities to ensure the continued delivery of the Global Fund’s core mission during a prolonged period of disruption.
Based on the recommendation of the Secretariat, as presented in GF/B42/ER09 – Revision 1, the Board approves the following:
The Secretariat may apply the temporary flexibilities described in paragraphs 2 and 3 above for an initial six-month period, subject to renewal by the Board. The Secretariat may apply the flexibility described in paragraph 1 through 30 June 2021.
The cost of implementing these decisions will be absorbed within the current 2020 OPEX budget.
