Avian and Human Influenza Facility : quarterly report to the advisory board for the period October 1, through December 31, 2008 (English)

This report focuses on the financial status of facility operations as of December 31, 2008. Highlights of this report include: 1) forty-one grants have been approved valued at $82.6 million, reflecting an increase of one $1.2 million grant (Bhutan 2) over the end September figure; a grant submission (Morocco) is still undergoing internal review; 2) four approved grants await signature; apart from Bhutan-2, the remaining three were all approved during the first quarter of FY09; 3) the Africa region remains grossly underfunded while a surplus of resources is available to the East Asia and South Asia region. The grant pipeline remains largely unchanged for the other regions; 4) total disbursement rose to $17.7 million, or 21.4 percent of grant approvals. This compares with $14.2 million for the pervious quarter, or about 17 percent of total grant approvals; 5) three rapid assessment grants in Africa were closed under the multi-donor window and the unused balance of $6,150 was returned to facility; 6) estimated donor pledges rose slightly to $126.4 million equivalent due to a small exchange rate moment, while remained at $107.6 million.
