The allocation methodology for the 2020-2022 allocation period approved by the Board at its meeting on 15-16 May looks a lot like the methodologies used for 2017-2019 and 2014-2016. For the most part, the changes were relatively minor. The only significant change involved refinements to the disease burden indicators for malaria for the allocation formula (see below).
Sustainability was a prominent theme in the November report of the Grant Approvals Committee to the Board. Ten of the 22 grants recommended for approval had already taken some steps towards sustainability or included measures in their proposed programs. Three of the 10 grants were from low income countries.
