Approved Global Fund Round 8 Malaria Grants are listed in the chart below.Â As we know, approval of a proposal does not mean that funds start flowing.Â It is now necessary for the designated countries to prepare their plans and budgets so that formal grant signing can proceed.
Of the 29 Malaria grants approved in Round 7, five still have no designated Prinicpal Recipient since the grant has not been signed. These include Chad, Malawi, Sudan, East Timor and Nicaragua.
As we have stressed before, partners who help countries develop grant proposals should not abandon them after the proposal has been submitted. The work is just beginning once the proposal has been approved.
