Kenya will be able to reprogram nearly $30 million within an existing malaria grant to support the scale-up of universal access to vector interventions and treatment. The $30 million consists of $22.5 million in new funding from the allocation Kenya received for malaria under the new funding model, plus about $7 million left over from an earlier malaria grant.
The Global Fund has agreed to release three documents related to concept notes that were not previously made public. The documents are the modular template attachment; the financial gap analysis and counterpart financing attachment; and the programmatic gap attachment.
Sixteen Eastern European and Central Asian countries (EECA) will submit a total of 27 concept notes to the Global Fund under the new funding model, to access their share of the $659 million allocated to the region. For some of these countries, this is likely to be their last allocation of Fund grants as they transition out of eligibility towards state-funded programs for the fight against HIV and TB.
« Finalement, le Fonds mondial est axé sur l'être humain » : le directeur exécutif Mark Dybul présente son rapport
S'éloignant du rapport typique d'un directeur exécutif, Mark Dybul, dans le rapport qu'il a présenté au Conseil d'administration à l'occasion de la 33e réunion de celui-ci, revient sur les six déplacements qu'il a effectués au cours du premier trimestre de 2015, des voyages qui lui ont apporté la preuve de ce qu'il appelle l'ampleur et la souplesse du nouveau modèle de financement.
Switching gears from a typical executive director's report to the Board during the Global Fund's 33rd meeting on 31 March, Mark Dybul reflected on the six trips he had made in the first quarter of 2015 that demonstrated what he said were the breadth and flexibility inherent in the new funding model.
Incentive funding awards reduced to find money to cover gaps in countries with shortened grant durations, TRP says
According to the Technical Review Panel (TRP), incentive funding recommendations for components submitted in Window 4 were reduced because the Secretariat “saw no other option to cover gaps for countries with shortened grant durations”. The gaps refer to the period between the end of the shortened grants and December 2017, after which funding from the next replenishment should become available.
The Global Fund provided an update on its implementation of the $15 million Community, Rights and Gender (CRG) Special Initiative: technical assistance to improve civil society participation in country dialogue and concept note development, and support for long-term capacity development of civil society networks.
The CRG special initiative has three components:
Грузия планирует представить свою концептуальную заявку по ВИЧ 20 апреля, в 6-ом регистрационном окне, а концептуальную заявку по ТБ 15 июля, в 7-ом регистрационном окне.
Under the new funding model (NFM), the Global Fund created a system to maintain an inventory of unmet needs identified by countries, the funding for which exceeds their allocation for the period 2014-2017.
