South Africa (TB/HIV) and Tanzania (malaria) receive the highest awards

In March 2016, the Global Fund Board approved $625 million in funding for 21 grants emanating from concept notes submitted by 11 countries. Of the $625 million, $300 million represented new money; the balance was existing funding that had been approved prior to the new funding model but was nevertheless included in the NFM allocations to countries. The Board was acting on recommendations from the Grant Approvals Committee and the Technical Review Panel.

In addition, the Fund placed interventions worth $58 million in the registry of unfunded quality demand. See the table for details.

The Board also approved $5 million for a regional grant to the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States.

The grants to Cameroon and Guinea-Bissau were in euros which were converted to dollars at the rate of 1.1105.

The largest awards went to South Africa ($314.5 million for HIV) and Tanzania ($162.4 million for malaria).

We will provide additional information on these awards in a future GFO article.

Information for this article comes from the March 2016 report of the Secretariat’s Grant Approvals Committee to the Board (GF-B34-ER12-EDP16-17). This document is not available on the Fund’s website. This article was modified on 11 April to correct an error in the name of the PR shown for the Cameroon malaria grant.
