For over a decade, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria (Global Fund) has been one of the world’s largest donors in the HIV epidemic. Due in part to the community activism of key affected populations (KAPs), including transgender women, the Global Fund has established processes for engaging local civil society and KAPs groups under its New Funding Model (NFM). Through engagement with processes such as country dialogue, including the work of Country Coordinating Mechanisms (CCMs), transgender activists and organizations have helped to increase funding and programmatic focus on transgender needs related to HIV prevention and treatment.

However, extensive barriers remain to sufficiently addressing transgender needs in the HIV epidemic, and little work has been done to document good practices for engaging key donors such as the Global Fund. This report, commissioned by the IRGT: A Global ...

The Board of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Global Fund) adopted the Eligibility and Counterpart Financing Policy, designed to optimize funding based on economic and health indicators in 2013. Eligibility was determined by income level and disease burden in a specific country context. The rationale behind this approach was that relatively well performing economies, in particular with moderate burdens of disease, can and should assume responsibilities for funding programs addressing these diseases. With the introduction of the New Funding Model (NFM), the Global Fund’s allocations for 2014-2017 for countries in Eastern Europe and Central Asia (EECA), many of which are middle-income countries, have been reduced by 15% in comparison with 2010-2013 disbursements. The Global Fund has been gradually scaling down or fully withdrawing its support from many countries in EECA.

The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria (Global Fund) is under mounting pressure to reduce the funding it provides to upper-middle-income countries while at the same time ensuring that the important program commitments it has made up to now are sustained and that no vulnerable persons are left behind even as the Global Fund recedes as a major donor. This is particularly an issue for key populations—those at heightened risk of infection but facing barriers to accessing lifesaving service because of political, cultural, and legal barriers—that have benefited from Global Fund-financed programs but risk losing that support if and when the Global Fund recedes or leaves.

This report shares the results of a survey, carried out by AMSHeR in 13 African countries in February 2015, on inclusion of people living with HIV (PLHIV), men-having-sex-with men (MSM), and sex workers in the first year for the Global Fund’s New Funding Model.

The results show that while representatives of these groups participated in Global Fund discussion in their countries, in most cases, critical health needs as well as human rights challenges were not fully reflected in specific activities or budgets in the finished Global Fund requests.

Global Fund HIV projects have been implemented in Bulgaria since 2003. At the moment Bulgaria is technically eligible for funding under the Global Fund’s NGO rule, which allows for non-governmental organizations in countries with political barriers to service provision to apply for Global Fund funding without CCM approval. However Bulgaria was not allocated any HIV funding for the period 2014 – 2017 under the Global Fund new funding Model (NFM) as the Global Fund decided there was insufficient evidence of political barriers to implementing HIV prevention activities in-country.
