Value for Money in Donor HIV Funding
This report describes the funding flows of the two major international donors combating the HIV epidemic - the US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria - and systematically lays out how to track the efficiency of HIV service provision at the funder level. It also discusses existing gaps in data availability that prevent an evaluation of the efficiency with which current services are provided.
The report is sponsored by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation. The analysis is based on publicly available data, as well as discussions with representative of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), the Office of the US Global AIDS Coordinator (OGAC) and the Global Fund.
This report should be of particular interest to scholars and policymakers in international donor institutions and other agencies, as well as individuals involved in the funding process for these activities.
In the largest clinical trial ever carried out in Africa, scientists provided evidence that clinicians don't necessarily need routine lab tests to treat HIV, allowing for more effective, cheaper delivery. more
