Mapping the Donor Landscape in Global Health: HIV/AIDS. Kates J, Michaud J, Wexler A, and Valentine A. (2013)


To provide some perspective on the geographic presence of global health donors and to help stakeholders begin to answer some of the above questions, the Kaiser Family Foundation is undertaking a series of analyses to describe the global health “donor landscape.” Using three years of data from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), we map the geographic landscape of global health donor assistance, looking both at donor presence and magnitude of donor assistance by issue area, region, and country. The effort is intended to shed new light on donor presence within and across recipient countries, and to produce a set of figures and tools that stakeholders can use in both donor and recipient countries.

The New Funding Model Summary. The Global Fund. (2013)

Core New_Funding_Model_Summary_2013

A transition to the new funding model is underway. Access to funding in the transition phase is by invitation, and special consideration will be given to countries in a position to achieve rapid impact, those at risk of service interruptions, and those currently receiving less than they would under the new funding model’s allocation principles. There is diversity across regions and diseases and types of applicants, so that elements of the new funding model can be tested and refined.

Sri Lanka: National AIDS Spending Assessment 2009-2010. Colombo, Institute for Health Policy and National STD/AIDS Control Programme Ministry of Health (2012)

Sri Lanka_National_AIDS_Spending_Assessment

Tracking of national HIV expenditures and financing flows are an essential requirement to monitor and plan the resources for tackling HIV. The National AIDS Spending Assessment (NASA) tool, assists to monitor these scarce resources for HIV, considering not just the health components, but also education, social protection services, and others, in order to evaluate and quantify the multi-sectoral approach of the national AIDS response. NASA will help to identify funding gaps and duplication of funding in the national response to HIV epidemic.

This publication provides estimates of overall HIV spending in the country for the years 2009–2010, and will be of much value to the Ministry of Health (MOH), as well as the stakeholders who are interested in understanding the financial flows of the national AIDS response.
