EHRA and the Alliance for Public Health call to join the Valentine’s Day Global Action in support of the Global Fund’s efforts to ensure the necessary level of investment within the Sixth Replenishment
Eurasian Harm Reduction Association together with the Alliance for Public Health encourage organizations involved in response to HIV and TB epidemics in the countries of the EECA region to join the international action in support of the Global Fund’s efforts to ensure the necessary level of investment within the Sixth Replenishment. The action is timed to coincide with February 14 – St. Valentine’s Day, which explains adding a love wording into these advocacy efforts.
Organizations urge you to sign an open letter to key donor countries (Australia, USA, UK, Japan, South Korea, France, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and European Union) requesting them to show us their love by increasing their pledges within the Sixth Replenishment of the Global Fund, thereby showing leadership and reaffirming their commitment to fighting the three diseases. It is also an opportunity to increase awareness, boost contributions and bring new donors from EECA region, including Croatia, Estonia, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovenia.
The signed letter will be delivered by the Alliance for Public Health to the embassies of the respective countries in Kiev – the capital of the country (Ukraine), which received the largest Global Fund investments on HIV and TB response from among other countries in the region within the current allocation period.
The action was initiated by the Global Fund Advocates Network Asia-Pacific (GFAN AP) and is now supported by over 40 countries in the Asia-Pacific and Africa. This initiative is now also being supported in Africa through GFAN Africa for both Anglophone and Francophone countries.
Attached you may find the master template of the letter to be signed and delivered to the embassies of the donor countries. Specific language may differ from letter to letter (country to country) given the requests of CS working in those countries to complement and support their advocacy strategies.
In case your organization is ready to join the action – please provide us on email@example.com by Monday COB 11.02. with the next data:

Services for migrants and refugees from Ukraine – HIV/TB care with a focus on key populations
Due to the increasing flows of refugees from Ukraine because of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the EECA Regional Platform created a spreadsheet to fill contacts details of face-to-face and online services for refugees and migrants (with a focus on HIV/TB care and key population groups).
If you provide such services or know verified providers, please fill out the spreadsheet at your earliest convenience, and, please, update it as more verified information is available. These can be services for national citizens if they are also accessible to international migrants and refugees.
