To support countries to develop and submit high quality malaria applications to the Global Fund during the Grant Cycle 7 (GC7) period, the RBM Partnership to End Malaria Country Regional Support Partner Committee organized the third mock Technical Review Panel (TRP) for window 3 countries in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia from July 19–21, 2023. Participants included representatives from 12 malaria-endemic countries in Africa and Asia Pacific, such as Malaria Programme Managers, M&E Officers, Global Fund focal personnel, CCM's, and local partners. Additionally, the workshop was attended by RBM Secretariat, Global Fund Secretariat, RBM consultants, WHO, and other partners. The event was held in a hybrid format, with 92 participants attending in-person and 13 participating virtually. UN agencies, NGOs, academia, parliamentarians, private sector, and Civil Societies were also represented. The main goal of the meeting was to provide an opportunity for countries to conduct a comprehensive peer review of their GF malaria funding applications, with support from recognized experts, to ensure the finalization of the application prior to submission to the Global Fund. The workshop was aimed at countries that will submit their malaria funding applications to the Global Fund by 21 August 2023. The post-meeting technical evaluation was very well rated across the board with all technical components of the workshop rated above good. The vast majority of respondents expressed that the workshop had a significant positive impact on their GF funding requests, leading to notable improvements.
