This short information note is designed to support those involved in the development of concept notes, applications and grants for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, and for the implementation of comprehensive and effective HIV responses more broadly. The target audience includes Country Coordinating Mechanisms, grant recipients, civil society representatives, advocates, and proposal writers. This document has been developed by the International Drug Policy Consortium (IDPC), the International HIV/ AIDS Alliance and the Open Society Foundations, and with input from colleagues at the Global Fund and other partners.
The case study was prepared between March and July 2015. EHRN collected and reviewed a range of background materials, and developed a detailed questionnaire to gather input from Serbian organizations that have received Global Fund support for harm reduction programs.
The number of new HIV infections in Eastern Europe and Central Asia (EECA) continues to grow, with people who inject drugs (PWID) and their sexual partners disproportionately affected by the epidemic. To address this challenge, the Eurasian Harm Reduction Network (EHRN), with support from the USAID- and PEPFAR-funded Health Policy Project (HPP), developed a suite of easy-to-use, Excel-based tools, available in Russian and English. Civil society organizations advocating harm reduction services can use them to estimate past expenditure levels, future resource needs, and potential funding gaps using local costs of services and products.
This document is a brief summary of key themes relating to the response to HIV and TB in Eastern Europe and Central Asia (EECA) - and positions on a range of issues within each theme - that should be reflected in the new Global Fund Strategy 2017–2021, as stated by civil society and communities’ representatives from the EECA region.
