Significant impacts exist as a result of Global Fund withdrawal from programs and service delivery in Bosnia and Herzegovina
Bosnia and Herzegovina- BiH, an upper-middle income country with low HIV prevalence rates in both the general and high-risk populations, estimated at around <0.1% and <0.5% respectively, became ineligible for Global Fund support after September 2016. In the country, possession of drugs and organization of provision of sex services are criminalized.
