21 November 2014

Below: Implementer Bloc Statement on Investing in Hepatitis C Treatment

Decision Points:

GF/B32/DP

1. The Board acknowledges the Strategy, Investment and Impact Committee's (the "SIIC") plan to develop recommendations for consideration at the March 2015 Board meeting on the Global Fund's role in funding treatment of co-infections and co-morbidities of HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, and directs the Secretariat to engage and collaborate with partners to support the SIIC's development of such recommendations.

2. As an interim measure until there is an outcome to those deliberations, where there is a currently approved budget for Hepatitis C virus (HCV) treatment within an existing Global Fund grant, the Global Fund may continue to fund such a treatment up to approved budget amount, as set forth in GF/B32/22, and may otherwise permit continuation of Global Fund funded HCV treatment programs during this interim period with new grants in these countries up to previously approved budgeted levels.

Dear Friends,

The launch of this much-anticipated call for proposals is open to Canadian NGOs, civil society groups and private sector organizations with experience implementing international development programming and MNCH interventions more specifically. It will fund initiatives for up to 5 years and will help to reduce maternal and child mortality and improve the health of women and children in 40 developing countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. With a total allocation of $370 million to the Partnerships for Strengthening Maternal, Newborn and Child Health, the focus will be on 1) strengthening health systems; 2) reducing the burden of disease; 3) improving nutrition, and; 3) ensuring accountability for results. All initiatives must also integrate DFATD's three cross-cutting themes of: environmental sustainability, gender equality and governance.
