The PCB welcomes the proposed strategy for resource mobilization as outlined in document UNAIDS/PCB(2)/95.6. It also welcomes the offer by Sweden to initiate an informal working group to discuss innovative methods of resource mobilization, including inter alia,
– clarification of financing mechanisms, particularly the proposed replenishment mechanism, taking into account that some donors may not be in a position to use such replenishment due to the constraints of their national budgetary processes;
– the role of the “Global Appeal” and how it relates to the fund raising activities of cosponsors, NGOs and national governments;
The PCB notes that the group will develop its own terms of reference, have a wide membership, and present options to the next meeting of the PCB.
