Since 2002, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GF) has become one of the most significant multilateral sources of health-related funds. It has also introduced an innovative network-related, "multistakeholder" approach to grant applications. This paper explores the effects of countries' connections to bilateral development organizations on GF disbursements. Analysis is consistent with network-related hypotheses. Over the first five rounds of GF disbursements—up to November 2005—the presence of bilateral aid organizations was associated with the receipt of a GF grant in an earlier grant cycle, with more GF grants in total, and with larger dollar amounts. These "network effects" were net of countries' disease burden, wealth, and a range of other characteristics.
