EXTENDED: EHRN is looking for the consultant to develop an Info Note for communities and civil societies in Georgia on the national Transition Plan.

27 March 2017

Georgia has developed a Plan on Transition from Global Fund funding by 2021. This document has been approved by the CCM, after the lengthy development and consultation process. At this moment, it is not clear if further approval (e.g. by the Government) is planned. The document is critical for civil society and community representatives to ensure the sustainable transition of key for them HIV and TB services from Global Fund support to national funding. That is why it is important for civil society to have a clear understanding of its content including the key activities planned of key importance for civil society as well as existing gaps.
