allocation utilization period
Under new rules established by the Global Fund, if there are any unused funds in an existing grant at the end of the allocation utilization period for that grant, the funds cannot be added to the next allocation. Instead, the funds must be returned to the Global Fund’s general resource pool, to be used for portfolio optimization – e.g. to fund initiatives on the unfunded quality demand (UQD) register and to fill other funding gaps.
In the allocation letters to countries in Eastern Europe and Central Asia (EECA), the Global Fund made a strong push for increasing investments in building resilient and sustainable systems for health (RSSH).
