|Abstract:||Ten of the 11 Member countries in the WHO South-East Asia Region have access to Global Fund (GF) grants. From Round 1-7, the total approved grant to the Region is over US$850 million and the total lifetime budget is about US$ 1.7 billion. Countries of the Region are doing steadily better in proposal development with each passing Round of the Global Fund. However, some countries are still facing problems in grant negotiation and implementation. Grants need to be negotiated and signed after approval by the Board before disbursements for implementation can be made. Signing of grants after approval often get delayed because of the negotiation processes that need to be followed. Further, some countries are still facing problems in grant implementation. To fill these gaps, the Regional Office organized this workshop in collaboration with GF South-West Asia Cluster to address capacity development in grant negotiation and implementation.|
