The Global Fund Board today approved Round 2 grants as follows. Some countries received more than one grant. Most grants were in response to proposals from CCMs, but a few were in response to proposals from Sub-CCMs or from NGOs. This table shows the country totals, in alphabetical order.

The Global Fund is in a precarious financial plight. Of the $7.9 billion that the Fund needs to receive during 2003 plus 2004, only $1 billion has been pledged.
