Alliance Ukraine, IPC in Burkina Faso and MAC in Malaysia will receive Round 10 funding over the next five years to reach most at risk populations with community-led HIV and AIDS services, including:
The Global Fund’s commitment to dual financing - the inclusion of both government and non-governmental Principal Recipients (PRs) - has resulted in increased allocation of funds to civil society, which has benefited the Alliance.
This latest round of funding takes the number of Alliance organisations that are PRs of active grants to seven, working with a global Alliance portfolio of just under half billion USD ($479,650,216).
Ukraine, Burkina Faso and Malaysia join ANS-CI in Cote d’Ivoire, Corporacion Kimarina in Ecuador, the India HIV/AIDS Alliance and ANCS in Senegal as civil society PRs of active grants (Round 6-10 funding).
UKRAINE:SECOND LARGEST GRANT
Ukraine was allocated the second largest grant in Round 10 funding. Alliance Ukraine is one of three co-Principal Recipients, along with the PLHA Network and the State AIDS Centre.
Ukraine’s $305 million grant covers 2012-2016 with $94 million included within the first two years is the largest Ukraine has ever received to fight HIV/AIDS.
“The Global Fund’s decision” said Dr Yuri Kobyshcha, Alliance Ukraine’s Governing Board Chairman, “has given us a chance to make a radical impact on the HIV epidemic in Ukraine”.
