The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria is pleased to announce that the Round 11 call for proposal is now open, with a submission date of 15 December 2011.

In 2009, the Global Fund Board approved new grant architecture, to simplify the Global Fund‟s support to implementers of national disease-fighting and cross-cutting health systems strengthening programs. Starting with Round 11, all disease proposals submitted to the Global Fund, including National Strategy Applications (NSA), will require the applicant to present a consolidated proposal, which incorporates financial and programmatic information on any current Global Fund support to the country for the disease program.

Consolidated proposals give applicants the opportunity to reflect on progress made towards addressing the disease or health systems gaps with their existing Global Fund grants, and propose a revised strategy going forward based on the changes.
