Global Fund Investment Guidance for Eastern Europe and Central Asia
The Global Fund, in collaboration with a wide range of stakeholders, has embarked on the development of a Global Fund Investment Guidance for EECA for the 2014-2016 allocation period. The aim of this guidance is to recommend strategic priorities for contributing to sustainable impact on HIV/AIDS and TB in the region and thereby help reverse the tide of the epidemics.
The Global Fund is rolling out a new approach to funding programs. The goal is to ensure efforts to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria have the greatest possible impact. This updated approach is known as the “new funding model.”
One feature of the new funding model is expanded space for the meaningful involvement of civil society, communities and key populations in designing, monitoring and implementing programs that affect their lives.
