At the same time, after a period of exponential growth in international aid for health, the economic crisis resulted in decrease of donors’ funding available for developing countries, including for HIV and TB programs, and in particular this is the case for the support available from the Global Fund.
Seeking to evaluate the processes and consequences of the transition from the Global Fund financing of HIV response among key affected populations with the sustainability of harm reduction services, a number of case studies were developed on some of Balkan countries (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Romania and Montenegro).
The development of these case studies was guided by a Transition Readiness Assessment Tool (TRAT) developed to analyze the readiness and risks of transition from donor funding to sustainable domestic financing, identifying key barriers that must be addressed before sustainable transition is possible with a particular emphasis on assessing the sustainability of harm reduction services through and beyond the transition period.

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.
