Invest in Advocacy. UNAIDS. (2016)

immage

Advocacy by people living with and affected by HIV has been critical to the progress made the response to HIV since the beginning of the epidemic. Advocacy has sparked action in the face of denialism and indifference, mobilized unprecedented financial resources and enabled communities to participate in designing health services that meet their needs. When traditional policy- making processes stall due to bureaucracy, advocacy shines a light on the problem and leverages community power and political will to drive action and innovation. This is why AIDS advocates around the world remain a major force for an accelerated, more equitable scale-up of effective HIV and health programming.

UNAIDS and the Global Fund. UNAIDS. (2016)

Over the past three decades, historic progress has transformed HIV from a deadly disease to a chronic condition. Critical milestones have been reached towards universal access: more than 17 million people globally are receiving HIV treatment, and the world is on track to eliminate mother to child transmission of HIV.

Still, more than 2 million people are newly infected with HIV annually. Last year alone 1.1 million people needlessly lost their lives and HIV remains one of the leading causes of death among children under five years old, adolescents and women of reproductive age. Since the beginning of the epidemic, more than 70 million people have died due to AIDS. Despite the extraordinary progress, HIV remains a serious challenge for global health and development goals.

Fast-Track Update on Investments Needed in the AIDS Response. UNAIDS. (2016)

immage

The world has pledged within the Sustainable Development Goals to end the AIDS epidemic as a public health threat by 2030. Such an extraordinary achievement will require an extraordinary and urgent effort—fully funding and front-loading investment in comprehensive HIV responses and intensifying the focus on the populations and locations in greatest need. The UNAIDS 2016–2021 Strategy elaborates this Fast-Track approach. Adopted by the UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board in October 2015, the Strategy contains HIV service coverage targets that need to be achieved by 2020 to establish the momentum necessary to overcome one of the largest public health threats in human history by 2030.

HIV Investments #HLM2016AIDS. UNAIDS. (2016)

The cost of inaction is staggering. Failure to Fast-Track would translate to an additional 17.6 million HIV infections globally and an additional 10.8 million AIDS-related deaths globally between 2016 and 2030.

UNAIDS and the Global Fund — Investing in the Future through Partnership. UNAIDS. (2016)

immage

The global commitment to ending the AIDS epidemic represents an unparalleled opportunity to end one of the most devastating modern-day health challenges. Over the past three decades, historic progress has transformed the AIDS response. More than 18 million people globally are receiving life-saving HIV treatment, and the world is on track to eliminate mother-to-child transmission of HIV. However, more than 2 million people are newly infected with HIV annually and, in 2015, more than a million people died from HIV-related causes. Strategic partnerships such as that of UNAIDS and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (the Global Fund) are vital if we are to Fast-Track the AIDS response to end AIDS as a public health threat by 2030.

Scaling up HIV Treatment for MSM in Bangkok: What Does It Take? — A Modelling and Costing Study. Zhang L, Phanuphak N, Henderson K, et al. (2015)

immage

The HIV epidemic amongst men who have sex with men (MSM) in Bangkok is substantial. The population size of MSM in Bangkok is 120,000-250,000, with approximately one-third (33.5 percent) considered high-risk, characterized by their young age, multiple partnerships, frequent unprotected anal intercourse, and sexual activities around MSM hotspots. In metropolitan Bangkok, HIV prevalence among MSM reportedly increased from 21 percent to 28 percent between 2000 and 2012. The Thai Working Group of Estimation and Projection (2013) projected an estimate of 39,000 new HIV infections would occur in Thailand during 2012-2016, based on the AIDS Epidemic Model (AEM).

Game Changers, Success Stories, Lessons Learned: The ADB Cooperation Fund for Fighting HIV/AIDS in Asia and the Pacific. ADB. (2015)

immage

While the response to the region’s HIV epidemic has chalked up impressive gains in HIV prevention and treatment, too many people continue to fall through the gaps in existing services.

The ADB Cooperation Fund for Fighting HIV/AIDS in Asia and the Pacific benefitted from a $19.2 million grant from the Government of Sweden with the goal of assisting ADB’s developing member countries meet their commitment to Millennium Development Goal 6, target 6A: to have halted by 2015 and begun to reverse the spread of HIV. The objective of the fund was to support these countries to develop a comprehensive AIDS response; enable them to partner with ADB in areas that play to the bank’s strategic value and advantages; and particularly to benefit subregions, countries and communities that are most vulnerable to HIV. 

This report summarizes the experiences and lessons learned of the Cooperation Fund.
