In August, the Global Fund Board approved three new country grants (Colombia HIV, Honduras HIV and Kazakhstan TB) as well as two multi-country grants in Latin America and the Caribbean. A second set of awards were made – to eight grants in seven countries – for interventions from the Register of Unfunded Quality Demand, for portfolio optimization.


The Technical Review Panel has completed its reviews of all funding requests for the 2017-2019 allocation period, recommending 100% of total allocation funds ($10.3 billion), catalytic matching funds ($313 million), and catalytic multicountry funds ($260 million), with the Board having approved almost all of these recommendations. Nearly the entire $20 million set aside for emergency funding has also been awarded.


The Global Fund Board has decided to make Venezuela eligible for an allocation for malaria for the 2020-2022 allocation period, invoking a clause in the Fund’s eligibility policy enabling such a decision for countries not normally eligible for Global Fund support, in the event of malaria resurgence. The estimated number of malaria cases in Venezuela has increased almost tenfold since 2010, and accounts for more than half of all malaria cases in Latin America.


Strong political will in Rwanda has led the country to be one step ahead of the Global Fund's strategy on resilient and sustainable systems for health, by integrating funding for the response to the three pandemics in order to strengthen its health system. A literature review shows that such integration has made a considerable contribution to positive dynamics in the Rwandan system over the last 20 years and has had a catalytic effect on responding to pandemics.


The Global Fund Advocates Network has published a report on Sustainable Financing for Health advocacy, aimed at the global advocacy community, to encourage convergence of advocates’ priorities in their efforts to raise awareness of and support for the Global Fund, alongside the broader global health goals.


In West and Central Africa, almost half of tuberculosis cases are not notified, especially those among children and the most vulnerable populations. Further efforts are needed to roll out rapid diagnostic tools and to implement active screening strategies among high-risk groups, with the support of community stakeholders, in order to remove barriers to accessing TB services. A paradigm shift is underway, as TB professionals are increasingly interested in the role that community stakeholders and civil society can play in the fight against tuberculosis.  


The Global Fund Board has launched a recruitment process for new members of the Technical Review Panel, the independent group of health-care and development experts that reviews funding applications. The recruitment process is being managed by Devex. Applications are due by 15 September 2019.
