Global Fund board approves $41.7 million grant for North Korea TB-malaria work
Organization previously ended funding for DPRK projects in February last year

The board of Global Fund, an international aid financing organization, has approved a new $41.7 million grant for work related to tackling tuberculosis and malaria in North Korea, a spokesperson told NK News on Thursday.

The fund, which prompted widespread concern last year when announced it was ending a multi-million dollar DPRK project, is ready to launch the project pending approval from the North Korean government, they added.
