Financial resources for HIV/AIDS Programmes
The PCB took note of the report on Financial Resources for HIV/AIDS in low and middle-income and made suggestions on strengthening data content and presentation for future updates to the PCB. The PCB also reinforced its earlier decision that UNAIDS should provide leadership in the development of a multiparty global resource mobilisation strategy.
The PCB requested that the Secretariat continue to negotiate a partnership agreement with the Global Fund on behalf of the Programme and to submit it to the PCB for final approval.
The PCB recognised that the primary role of the Global Fund is to act as a financing mechanism. The PCB noted the critical role of UNAIDS in providing strategic analysis, policy advice and technical expertise and in supporting countries to access the resources of the Global Fund.
The PCB urged the Programme to continue these discussions, with a view to developing a partnership agreement that provides an enabling framework within which the Secretariat and Cosponsors can further develop their collaboration with the Global Fund, particularly at country level.
