With profound regret and with deep gratitude for his service to the Global Fund since May 2011, the Board accepts the resignation of Martin Dinham as Chair of the Global Fund Board due to ill health. The Board extends to Mr. Dinham and his family its very best wishes for a timely return to full health.
The Board appoints Simon Bland to serve as Chair of the Board on an interim basis until the Board appoints an individual to serve for the remainder of the term for which Mr. Dinham had been appointed.
The Board requests and looks forward to the donor group moving expeditiously to recommend a candidate for Board Chair with a target date of 15 October 2011
This decision has no material budgetary implications.
