National Guidelines Community-Led HIV Testing 2017 Nepal. Ministry of Health, Nepal. (2018)


Due to social and biomedical advances, and increased funding, the response to HIV globally has yielded remarkable results. There are better, improved tools for screening, diagnostics, and treatment of HIV. Community responses to HIV are also established as the cornerstone of effective, equitable and sustainable HIV programmes. People living with HIV, or at increased risk of HIV play a critical role in demanding and delivering services, supporting systems for health, and reaching those who are most vulnerable to HIV, where state facilities cannot, or are not equipped to do so.

Independent Global Programme Evaluation of the Fund for Gender Equality, 2009-2017. UN WOMEN. (2018)


This report contains the findings and recommendations of the first independent evaluation commissioned by UN Women’s Fund for Gender Equality (FGE), assessing USD 84 million invested through 121 grants across 80 countries since the FGE’s creation in 2009.

The evaluation found that the FGE implemented everything it set out to do in its strategies between 2009 and 2017. It directly touched the lives of an estimated 535,800 people, benefitting millions more through policy-level impact. The key contributions, it concluded, have entailed developing skills, addressing social norms to influence change, and establishing gender-responsive governance structures—all of which enabled greater women’s political and economic participation. The FGE helps legitimize women’s organizations and supports their learning through a culture of accompaniment. The evaluation also found that civil society sees the FGE as an important and necessary mechanism.

SHIFT has created country-specific snapshots of its 2017 National Situational Assessment report on HIV Financing in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Philippines.  The National Situational Assessment Report assesses the availability and sufficiency of HIV financing resources, as well as how resources are equitably and efficiently allocated across these four countries. The country snapshot provides an executive summary of the 4 countries as well as an in-depth review for each country. By providing a current snapshot on HIV financing in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Philippines, the assessment outlines HIV expenditure against HIV epidemiology, identifies national HIV  financing mechanisms, and describes national budget cycles and processes where available.
