Global Fund grants underfund HIV prevention among adolescents, the key driver of the epidemic in Eastern and Southern Africa
Global Fund grant to Belarus in 2015 was conditional on the government developing a social contracting mechanism
A social contracting mechanism which would allow the government to contract with NGOs to deliver prevention programs to key affected populations in Belarus is “under construction.” It is a slow process and there are still some uncertainties about how well it will function.
The Global Fund has pledged to re-energize HIV prevention and, in line with that commitment, civil society groups are calling on the Fund to offer more explicit data on how much it spends on these efforts. That includes not only overall expenditure data, but also granular information, like spending at a country level and spending on specific interventions.
