The Fund to Fight AIDS


The principles underlying the Fund:

The Fund is a financial instrument, not an implementing entity.

The Fund will make available and leverage additional financial resources to combat HIV AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.

The Fund will base its work on programs that reflect national ownership and respect country-led formulation and implementation processes.

The Fund will seek to operate in a balanced manner in terms of different regions, diseases and interventions.

The Fund will pursue an integrated and balanced approach covering prevention, treatment, and care and support in dealing with the three diseases.

The Fund will evaluate proposals through independent review processes based on the most appropriate scientific and technical standards that take into account local realities and priorities.

The Fund will seek to establish a simplified, rapid, innovative process with efficient and effective disbursement mechanisms, minimizing transaction costs and operating in a transparent and accountable manner based on clearly defined responsibilities. The Fund should make use of existing international mechanisms and health plans.

In making its funding decisions, the Fund will support proposals which:

Focus on best practices by funding interventions that work and can be scaled up to reach people affected by HIV AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria.

Strengthen and reflect high-level, sustained political involvement and commitment in making allocations of its resources.

Support the substantial scaling up and increased coverage of proven and effective interventions, which strengthen systems for working: within the health sector; across government departments; and with communities.

Build on, complement, and co-ordinate with existing regional and national programs (including governments, public/private partnerships, NGOs, and civil society initiatives) in support of national policies, priorities and partnerships, including Poverty Reduction Strategies and sector-wide approaches.

Focus on performance by linking resources to the achievement of clear, measurable and sustainable results.

Focus on the creation, development and expansion of government/private/NGO partnerships.

Strengthen the participation of communities and people, particularly those infected and directly affected by the three diseases, in the development of proposals.

Are consistent with international law and agreements, respect intellectual property rights, such as Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS), and encourage efforts to make quality drugs and products available at the lowest possible prices for those in need.

Give due priority to the most affected countries and communities, and to those countries most at risk.

Aim to eliminate stigmatisation of and discrimination against those infected and affected by HIV AIDS, especially for women, children and vulnerable groups.
