Revised Eligibility Criteria for Round 6

The Board decides that for Round 6, proposals from applicants whose economies are classified by the World Bank as "upper-middle income" may become eligible if the applicant falls under the "small island economy" exception to the International Development Association lending eligibility requirements, regardless of national disease burden.

This decision does not affect the applicability of counterpart financing and other eligibility requirements.

The Board requests the Portfolio Committee to review eligibility criteria for upper-middle income countries for Round 7 and provide recommendations at the Fourteenth Board Meeting.
