Towards Transformative Integration of the HIV and AIDS Response into Universal Health Coverage: Building on the Strength and Successes of the HIV and AIDS ResponseFebruary 2019 read more
New research conducted by Aidsfonds, Frontline AIDS, and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in Indonesia, Kenya, Uganda and Ukraine reveals opportunities but also major areas of concern as countries move towards UHC, while at the same time transitioning from international to domestic funding for HIV programmes.

Civil Society Strategy Session on CS Consultations for Global Action Plan for Healthier Living
In October 2018, a consortium of 11 global health institutions formally launched a new initiative with the release of Towards a Global Action Plan for Healthy Lives and Well-being for All: Uniting to Accelerate Progress towards the Health-Related SDGs. Led by the World Health Organization (WHO), the institutions are responding to a request from the governments of Germany, Ghana and Norway. The Global Action Plan (GAP) framework discussed in the document was drafted solely by the institutions themselves, without the participation of civil society or other sectors. Civil Society Engagement Mechanism for UHC2030 (CSEM) and the Global Fund Advocates Network (GFAN) organized the December 2018 two-day strategy session to consider how, where, when
and with whom civil society engagement in the GAP – also referred to by some as the SDG3 Action Plan – can and should be undertaken.
