Global Fund has provided financial assistance to Georgia’s national HIV/AIDS Programme since 2003 and the National TB Programme since 2005. Global Fund plays a crucial role in ensuring access to treatment, including allowing Georgia to procure quality assured, affordable drugs through pooled procurement mechanisms, such as Global Fund’s Pooled Procurement Mechanism for HIV and the Global Drug Facility (GDF) for TB. Georgia was recently re-classified as a lower-middle income country (LMIC) by the World Bank, despite GDP per capita gradually increasing in recent years, and this could impact its co-financing requirements with Global Fund after the current 3-year funding cycle ends.
This case study explores how Georgia and the Global Fund have acted to ensure that transition from Global Fund funding does not compromise stable procurement of TB and HIV commodities and access to medicines, in terms of both continuity and scale up. Georgia has been successful through early planning, collaboration with partners and many other reasons explored throughout this case study.

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.
