The Global Fund is establishing a pool of Technical Assistance Providers for the implementation of Programs to Reduce Human Rights-related Barriers to HIV, TB and Malaria service
The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and malaria is committed to promoting human rights in the context of the three diseases, recognising that these programs are critical to ensure that the health services supported by the Global Fund reach and are taken up by those most affected by HIV, TB and malaria. Its Strategy for 2017-2022 reaffirms this commitment and contains a strategic sub-objective “introduce and scale up programs that remove human rights barriers to accessing HIV, TB and malaria services” (SO3c).
In 2017, to further support these commitments, the Global Fund launched the Breaking Down Barriers to Access initiative, an intensive support effort in 20 countries where comprehensive assessments to understand the access barriers to HIV, TB and malaria services were conducted.
The 20 countries are Cameroon, Core d’Ivoire, DRC, Mozambique, Kenya, South Africa, Uganda, Ukraine, Sierra Leone, Botswana, Ghana, Indonesia, Senegal, Kyrgyzstan, Philippines, Nepal, Tunisia, Jamaica, Honduras and Benin. In those countries, the matching funds were also made available to support the countries to substantially scale-up evidence-based programs to address human rights-related barriers identified.
As of January 2019, the Global Fund has completed 19 baseline assessments; and held successful multi-stakeholder meetings in nine countries to support the development of the comprehensive multi-year plan to implement the comprehensive human rights response to HIV and TB- Mozambique, South Africa, Botswana, Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan, Jamaica, Honduras, Nepal and Tunisia.
All 20 countries in the initiative had matching fund requests reviewed and approved by the TRP, substantially increasing investment in programs to address human rights-related barriers. The baseline assessments outcomes have largely been reflected in those applications and greatly help the countries to develop quality programs for their applications.
However, as countries are now starting to implement a much expanded array of programs/interventions to reduce human rights-related barriers to services, it has become apparent that capacity to effectively implement programs to address human rights-related barriers should be strengthened in many settings.
The Global Fund has made available dedicated resources to provide short-, medium- and longer-term technical assistance for effective implementation of programs to reduce human rights-related barriers to services, as well as monitoring and evaluating mechanisms to monitor progress made in those countries, and now is establishing a pool of Technical Assistance Providers for the implementation of Programs to Reduce Human Rights-related Barriers to HIV, TB and Malaria service.
