Health Systems Strengthening (HSS) Resource Allocation

The PPC is recommending a new method for allocating the maximum grant an eligible country could receive through the Health Systems Strengthening (HSS) programme. Compatible with the four principles the Prioritisation Task Team identified (supporting nationally-defined priorities, objectivity, transparency and feasibility), the new formula better allocates funds toward the countries with the greatest need.

Resource Envelope and Spending between Cash-based and Vaccine Programmes

Noting that whilst keeping a vaccine focus, an integrated vision of vaccines and system building has become core to the GAVI mission and a powerful tool for fundraising, the right balance needs to be struck.

Two decisions are presented for the Board’s consideration.
