ABSTRACT Aidspan has released a revised version of Volume 1 of “The Aidspan Guide to Round 8 Applications to the Global Fund." It contains new information on eligibility requirements for Round 8 with respect to what the Fund used to call "counterpart financing", and on measures the Fund has adopted to make it easier to finance health systems strengthening activities.
Aidspan has released a revised version of Volume 1 of “The Aidspan Guide to Round 8 Applications to the Global Fund.” It is accessible at no charge at www.aidspan.org/guides, where various other Aidspan Guides are also available.
The revised version, dated 17 January, updates some of the information provided in the original version, which was described in Issue #83 of GFO (available at www.aidspan.org/gfo). In particular, the revised version contains new information on:
- eligibility requirements for Round 8 with respect to what the Fund now refers to as “cost-sharing” (these replace the eligibility requirements with respect to what the Fund used to refer to as “counterpart financing”); and
- measures adopted by the Board designed to make it easier to fund health systems strengthening activities (these measures will be reflected in the Round 8 proposal form and guidelines).
