Situation analysis of sustainability planning and readiness for responsible transition of harm reduction programs from Global Fund support to national funding in EECA

The report was prepared by David Otiashvili, M.D., Ph.D., between June and August 2015. The author collected and reviewed a range of background materials and gathered input from key informants familiar with the Global Fund projects in reviewed countries.

The desk review included analysis of country reports, program evaluation reports and data from international organizations. In-depth interviews with country respondents covered topics related to the progress of Global Fund funded programs, and the process of preparation for transition to domestic funding.

Key informants included fund portfolio managers (FPMs), recipients of Global Fund grants, members of Country Coordinating Mechanisms (CCMs), representatives of civil society organizations and key affected groups in 11 countries reviewed in this report.
