Global fund round 8 proposal development : report of the workshop, Jakrta, Indonesia, 11-13 March 2008
AbstractThe Global Fund Round 8 Proposal Development Workshop held in Jakarta, Indonesia, from 11-13 March 2008 was the third in a series of workshops that the World Health Organization's Regional Office for South-East Asia has organized with support from the Global Fund Secretariat. Similar workshops were held for proposal development for Round 6 and Round 7. WHO considers capacity development in the countries for accessing, implementing and monitoring and evaluation of GF grants as the key to effectively utilize Global Fund resources to improve the outcomes for HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria. The workshop aimed to enable countries to develop technically sound proposals in compliance with Round 8 proposal guidelines and Global Fund requirements. This workshop brought together 80 participants from 13 countries from the South Asia and Pacific Regions. Participants had the opportunity to listen first-hand to the views of the architects of the Round 8 forms and guidelines, discuss various common issues, reflect on the concepts of their anticipated proposals, and how they could be developed further to meet the Round 8 proposal submission deadline of 1 July 2008.
