Correction to Definition of High Disease Burden for Global Fund Financing of Tuberculosis in Upper-Middle Income Countries

The Board decides to correct an error in the definition of high disease burden for Global Fund financing of tuberculosis in Upper-Middle Income Countries by amending paragraph 2 of Part 3 of the document entitled "Income Level and Cost Sharing Eligibility Criteria for Proposals for Funding from the Global Fund" (GF/B16/7 Attachment 1, Revision 1) as follows:

"The country in which the proposal activities are targeted is included on the WHO list of high-burden countries or on the WHO list of countries that account for 97 percent of all new cases attributable to HIV/AIDS."
