In June 2012, the Global Fund Board approved the “re-launch” of a health systems strengthening (HSS) grant in Mozambique. After two years of inactivity, the grant was re-launched as a three-year re-programmed grant. It is believed to be the first time a grant has ever been re-launched.

HSS Reference Guide for Round 11 Proposals Released
Aidspan plans to release the English version of Volume 2 of "The Aidspan Guide to Round 11 Applications to the Global Fund" within a few days of the launch of Round 11 (which is scheduled for 15 August).

French- and Spanish-language versions of the "Toolkit for Using Round 10 of the Global Fund for Health Systems Strengthening" are now available.
A new toolkit for use in preparing Round 10 proposals contains information on how countries can use funding from the Global Fund to support health systems strengthening (HSS) activities. It also contains information on technical support providers that are available to assist applicants in developing proposals that address HSS.
On 28-30 April 2010, the Global Fund Board held its 21st board meeting in Geneva. GFO was present, with observer status.
As mentioned in Article 2, the Global Fund and the Global AIDS Vaccine Alliance (GAVI) will develop a joint proposal form for cross-cutting health systems strengthening (HSS) activities in time for use in Round 11.
The progress we have made in the fight against AIDS, TB and malaria has had a significant positive impact on our efforts to build strong health systems and improve maternal and child health. However, we need to invest significantly more in this integrated health system strengthening approach if we are to meet the health-related Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
If developing countries are to make significant progress in the coming decades in the battle against HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria, they will require not only the enormous financial resources that the Global Fund can provide, but also the active participation of a substantial army of foot-soldiers – engaging the enemy village by village in the countryside, and street by street in the cities.
