Creating Sustainable HIV Program Funding Locally and Abroad
In response to the HIV epidemic, governments and international philanthropies have supported the implementation of effective HIV prevention and treatment programs around the world, contributing to a 40 percent drop in new HIV infections since 1997, according to UNAIDS. The U.S. government, working through PEPFAR and other federal programs, is an important contributor to the AIDS response, but its funding has decreased in recent years.
What happens when initial program funding comes to an end? Local communities and national programs may scramble to secure reliable non-grant funding sources to sustain valuable programs. Abt Associates works closely with those communities and countries to support their HIV financing transitions.
Please join us at this webinar, during which Abt experts in U.S. and international HIV program financing will discuss recent examples of successfully sustaining programs in U.S. cities and Vietnam.
Jane Fox, Account Manager—HRSA SAMHSA, Abt Associates
The Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) are designed to incubate innovative models of HIV care and treatment and provide time-limited funding. Ms. Fox will share innovative approaches to sustaining financing in three federal HIV programs focused on oral health, homelessness and care for ex-offenders. Each program developed a sustainable funding stream tailored to the local community. Connect with Jane on LinkedIn.
Lisa Tarantino, Portfolio Manager—USAID Sustainable Financing for HIV project (Vietnam), Abt Associates
Vertical Program Integration: The USAID Sustainable Financing for HIV activity supports the Government of Vietnam (GVN) in mobilizing financing as it transitions from donor to domestic funding. The program’s capacity building, field visits, workshops and advocacy help HIV outpatient clinics integrate into public health facilities and provide HIV services through the social health insurance (SHI) scheme. 99% of HIV treatment facilities transitioned to SHI by September 2019.
