Our two briefs, The LAM Test: Ensuring Scaled-Up, Expanded TB LAM Testing for People Living With Advanced HIV for Country Programs and The LAM Test: Ensuring Scaled-Up, Expanded TB LAM Testing for People Living With Advanced HIV for Donors, offer scientific evidence of the benefits of TB LAM testing, share an analysis of PEPFAR and Global Fund grants for the inclusion of TB LAM testing, and outline potential steps that countries and donors can take to make sure national TB programs can easily access this life-saving test.

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.

GFAN members Friends of the Global Fund Europe and Osservatorio AiDS, in collaboration with AIDOS, and the theatre company Bluestocking, launched, earlier this month, a short video highlighting the most common stereotypes on HIV/AIDS in Italy.  The video uses ironic messages to shape the audiences’ understanding of the portrayed clichés and highlight the critical role of the Global Fund in addressing the global reach of AIDS.   Many of the stereotypes portrayed in the video are common in other countries and they wanted to share a version with English subtitles of their video . 

The video was initially launched in Italy on World AIDS Day. Two similar videos on tuberculosis and malaria will be released in the upcoming months.

The video is part of a joint information campaign to make the Global Fund better known in Italy ahead of the next replenishment.

People with HIV are still being discriminated against and criminalised in many countries. In some Eastern European countries, particularly in Russia, we observe that access to HIV and harm reduction services is hardly possible for drug user communities. In some African countries, punitive legislation against gays and other LGBTI communities means that people at increased risk cannot be reached through HIV programmes. In other  regions, gender inequalities result in girls...
