The Global Fund in the MENA Region: An Aidspan Regional Report 2015 |

Publisher: Aidspan

This report provides an overview of national challenges and innovations responding to the needs of key populations, as well as strategies to deploy the Global Fund’s investment in the fight against AIDS, TB and malaria. The report explores some of the major human rights considerations that influence decision- and policy-making with respect to targeting Global Fund support to specific activities in the response against the diseases. Gender inequality, institutionalized discrimination against members of vulnerable groups and punishing legal environments for behavior seen as outside the norm in conservative societies are some of the concerns that may limit the effectiveness of health programming, and will be decisive indicators of effectiveness and impact.
