Publisher: Médecins Sans Frontières
After years of reforms and measures put in place to cope with a funding shortfall, the Global Fund’s New Funding Model presents an unmissable opportunity, and MSF expects to see further progress as countries seize this momentum. However, a lack of clarity at country level regarding the New Funding Model, combined with low-level country funding allocations, may pose a threat to this progress.
This issue brief outlines key aspects of the New Funding Model that are critical for countries to put into practice. The second section provides observations from MSF teams working in the field of HIV in Democratic Republic of Congo, Guinea, Mozambique and Malawi regarding the current needs and challenges as these countries prepare their strategic plans and concept notes to access funding.
