The Committee believes that a successful implementation of the revised Framework will provide banks and supervisors with critical experience necessary to address such challenges. The Committee understands that the IRB approach represents a point on the continuum between purely regulatory measures of credit risk and an approach that builds more fully on internal credit risk models. In principle, further movements along that continuum are foreseeable, subject to an ability to address adequately concerns about reliability, comparability, validation, and competitive equity.......
During the orientation of Chairmen and Secretaries of Dairy Cooperative Societies to
the ration balancing programme, the process of selection of a local resource person is also
discussed. The Management Committee of Dairy Cooperative Societies passes a resolution
related to: 1) willingness of Dairy Cooperative Societies to participate in the ration balanc-
ing programme; 2) selection of the local resource person and sending him/her for the ration
balancing programme training; and 3) starting the advisory services.

Although social funds projects started with the short-term emergency
objective, they are increasingly incorporating longer term service deliv-
ery and capacity-building goals. The Portfolio Review found that around
80 percent of recent social funds projects, that is, those approved in fis-
cal years 1994–96, had long-term objectives.
As the objectives of social funds projects evolve over time, their design
and implementation need to change as well. The yardsticks used to
monitor performance should reflect evolving objectives.
In addition to reducing the risks and costs associated with multiple births,
insurance coverage for infertility would provide oversight and quality
controls. Payers, both public and private, generally set eligibility criteria for
who may receive or perform certain procedures. Such criteria could
recommend a limit on the number of embryos transferred in ART. The most
efficient method to accomplish this would be to require adherence to ASRM
guidelines, which are updated periodically.
When the indemnity method is used, the benefit is a set dollar amount. The
benefit is not based on the specific services received or on the expenses
incurred. The insurance company only needs to decide if you are eligible for
benefits and if the services you are receiving are covered by the policy.
Once the company decides you are eligible and you are receiving eligible
long-term care services, the insurance company will pay that set amount
directly to you up to the limit of the policy.
When the disability method is used, you are only required to meet the
benefit eligibility criteria.
Eligibility criteria for setting up a branch or liaison office center on the track record and net worth
of the foreign head office. For a branch, the head office must have a profit-making track record in
its home country during the immediately preceding five financial years (three years for a liaison
office). The net worth of the foreign head office cannot be less than USD 100,000 or its
equivalent to establish a branch (USD 50,000 or its equivalent to establish a liaison office).
Within this report, the term “equipment” has been interpreted to mean the main types of
equipment used in diagnostic radiology, nuclear medicine and radiotherapy. This follows the
precedent established in RP 91 (EC (1997b)). It is important to be aware that treatment of
the whole installation is outside the scope of this report. Thus, the requirements for an
acceptable physical building with shielding that will adequately protect staff, the public and
patients, power supplies and ventilation have not been addressed.
Research should focus on
the development and production of new high-affinity, non-immunoglobulin protein scaffolds
as an alternative to antibodies or oligonucleotides. Projects should aim at developing new,
efficient and safe therapies by combining high specificity with stable production
characteristics. Projects should include preclinical studies, methods for scale-up and GMP as
appropriate, should combine academic, clinical and industrial expertise and implement a
translational approach towards clinical trials (clinical proof-of-concept and/or phase I/II
The Thirteenth Replenishment Agreement of the World Bank’s
International Development Association (IDA), covering the period
2003-5 inclusive, introduced grant financing for the first time in IDA’s
40-year history. The Agreement recognized that unsustainable levels of
debt should be a criterion for eligibility of grants for low-income
borrowers, along with criteria such as the exigencies of natural disasters,
conflict and the HIV/AIDS pandemic. In IDA 13, each borrower was
subject to a cap of grant funding equivalent to 40 percent of its total
As they make these decisions, policymakers will need to consider the
distortions caused by prolonged conditions of monetary ease. After all,
sustained low interest rates have been identified by many as an important
factor that contributed to the crisis (see BIS, 79th Annual Report, Chapter I).
At the same time, policymakers should also closely monitor the distortions
arising from unconventional monetary policy tools. These include price
distortions in bond markets that can result from changes in central banks’
criteria for eligible repo collateral and from their asset purchases.
The term usually used to describe the way insurance companies decide
when to pay benefits is “benefit triggers.” This term refers to the criteria
and the methods that the insurance company uses to evaluate when you
are eligible for benefits, and the conditions you must meet to receive
benefits. This is an important part of a long-term care insurance policy.
Look at it carefully as you shop. The policy and the outline of coverage
usually describe the benefit triggers. Look for a section called “Eligibility for
the Payment of Benefits” or simply “Eligibility for Benefits.
To increase school diversity, geographic boundaries for St. Paul's neighborhood
schools are not always contiguous; magnet schools include socioeconomic status
(specifically, whether a student qualifies for reduced-cost or free lunch programs)
among their selection criteria (Schellenberg and Porter, 2003). In 1974 almost all
students in the St. Paul school district attended a school located in or near their
neighborhood. Today, any public school student [in the US, `public schools' refers to
schools receiving most of their funding from public government (tax-based) monies] in
Prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT)
is a dynamic and rapidly changing field. Current World Health
Organization (WHO) PMTCT antiretroviral (ARV) guidelines on
treating pregnant women and preventing infection in infants
(1), issued in 2010, were a major step towards more efficacious
The 2010 WHO PMTCT ARV guidelines are based on the need
to distinguish between treatment and prophylaxis. Consistent
with the 2010 WHO adult ART guidelines (2), they recommend
and prioritize starting all women with CD4 counts ≤350 cells/
mm3 or WHO Stage 3 or 4 disease (approximately 40–50% of
all HIV-infected pregnant women) on ART for life for their own
health as well as for the prevention of infant HIV infection.
Inclusion and exclusion criteria: Patients were eligible for enrollment in the study if they were aged 18 yr or more, had newly diagnosed pulmonary TB, had no history of previous treatment for TB, had knowledge of their HIV status, resided within 20 km of study site, assessed to be cooperative and willing for DOTS therapy as judged by counselor, had no major complications of HIV disease like encephalopathy, renal or hepatic disease, malignancy or any end stage disease and did not have any medical condition that might interfere with the management of the pulmonary tuberculosis like diabetes,...
