“The Aidspan Guide to Developing Global Fund Proposals to Benefit Children Affected by HIV/AIDS” has just been published, and is accessible at the Aidspan website. It supplements “The Aidspan Guide to Round 6 Applications to the Global Fund”, whose publication was announced yesterday.

“The Aidspan Guide to Developing Global Fund Proposals to Benefit Children Affected by HIV/AIDS” has just been published. It is accessible at no charge at www.aidspan.org/guides, where seven previous Aidspan guides are also available, including “The Aidspan Guide to Round 6 Applications to the Global Fund”, whose publication was announced yesterday.

Millions of children have been orphaned and made vulnerable because of HIV/AIDS. Yet, it is only in recent years that a concerted effort has been launched, in some of the hardest hit countries, to address the needs of these children. Very few proposals to the Global Fund have focussed on children affected by HIV/AIDS, particularly in the early rounds of funding. The Global Fund has the potential to be a major funder in this area.

The purposes of “The Aidspan Guide to Developing Global Fund Proposals to Benefit Children Affected by HIV/AIDS” are to encourage and facilitate more proposals to the Global Fund benefiting children; and to help countries not yet ready to submit proposals benefiting children to understand what is needed to get to the point where they are ready to submit such proposals.

The primary target audiences of the Guide are Country Coordinating Mechanisms (CCMs) and institutions supporting CCMs; national AIDS committees; and national committees, task forces and organisations working on issues concerning children affected by HIV/AIDS – in countries where some specific strategic planning in this area has already occurred. Secondary target audiences include the same types of organization in countries where specific strategic planning in this area has not yet begun or is just getting underway.
