Publisher: TB Europe Coalition
There is a need for sustainable transition to domestic funding, ensuring that TB and HIV programmes will be effectively continued, and more importantly scaled up, after the withdrawal of international donors, with national governments taking the responsibility and ownership of the response. Transition is a complex process and demands significant structural adjustments, effective planning, implementation and monitoring. All this requires long-term planning, as well as additional and more effective use of resources
This is why TBEC is publishing a comprehensive position paper that outlines the main challenges that needs to be taken into account when countries are transitioning, with concrete examples about what happens when countries are not able or not ready to take over from external donor support, causing negative impacts on the TB response.
