Regional Concept Note Development in the Global Fund’s (New) Funding Model: Observations from the second window
ICASO and the International HIV/AIDS Alliance issued a new paper “Regional Concept Note Development in the Global Fund’s (New) Funding Model: Observations from the second window”, in which they present the findings of six case studies of regional concept note (RCN) development experiences in Asia, West Africa, the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), Latin America and the Caribbean, and Eastern Europe and Central Asia (EECA).
In general, the regional application process improved in the second round compared to that of the first. More technical assistance was available, greater predictability was afforded to applicants, and more funding was mobilized to support RCN development. Applicants also benefited from lessons learned in the first round, and were generally more proficient at developing the applications. However, some challenges persist. Most notably, as the rationale and demand for regional programs expands, there remains only modest coordination and servicing of regional programs at the Global Fund Secretariat.
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.
