Publisher: GFAN Since its inception in 2002, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (the Global Fund) has played a critical role in mobilizing and securing resources to invest in programs that serve key and vulnerable populations. Key and vulnerable populations are present in all continents, despite continuing official denial of their sheer existence in some regions and countries. Science has taught us that addressing their needs is not only a human rights obligation but also a requirement from an epidemiological and public health point of view. Ending the epidemics will not be possible if we do not increase service coverage among these groups. This requires engagement, empowerment, and mobilization of communities, which is where networks and organizations of key and vulnerable populations are the most effective leaders, and vital Global Fund partners. This briefing paper, sponsored by the Global Fund Advocates...

Publisher: EANNASO The Global Fund’s Strategy for 2017-2022: “Investing to End Epidemics” aims to focus on the countries with the highest burden of HIV, TB and malaria and with the least ability to pay for these programs. It also aims to focus on key and vulnerable populations disproportionately affected by the three diseases. The allocation methodology aims to increase impact by directing a greater portion of the funding to these people and places. To do this, the Global Fund invests in countries, regions, and other strategic initiatives. It has a specific policy which helps guide decisions on how money should be divided up by countries and diseases.

Publisher: Aidspan &  APMGlobal Health This report by Aidspan and APMGlobal Health provides recommendations for countries transitioning from Global Fund and other funding partner support. The authors suggest that transitions need to be based on three sets of principles: (1) transparency and predictability; (2) good practice; and (3) human rights. The section on transparency and predictability describes the need for systematic transition criteria, publicly available transition schedules, and coordinated donor decisions. In the section on good practice, the paper explains the need for adequate time, high-level country commitment, country ownership of the process, and built-in monitoring and evaluation. The section on human rights discusses how transitions can protect and promote human rights by maintaining and expanding access to essential HIV services for key populations. This is done through creating funding mechanisms for NGOs and inc...

Publisher: Aidspan This is a report emanating from a case study analysis by Aidspan of how The Global Fund’s willingness-to-pay policy leveraged additional government resources in the new funding model. The purpose of the study was to increase transparency around the Fund’s WTP policy, especially how it was operationalized at country level. The report provides quantitative and qualitative data on a small number of country case studies, detailing how much money countries committed as part of WTP, and what they committed to spend that money on. The study also describes how these commitments were obtained, including who participated in the process and any challenges which were encountered. Finally, the study describes how the WTP has contributed to spending on key populations, and how it impacted transition processes in upper-middle-income countries.
