PUBLICACIÓN ACTUAL DEL OFM
In April, hundreds of children in Pakistan were infected with HIV through the use of unsterile syringes and intravenous drips. Pakistani authorities initially said that the outbreak was traceable to the practice of a single doctor, who was arrested and taken into custody, but public health experts believe his practice to be only a part of the cause. The outbreak has shone a spotlight on what are thought to be widespread unsafe medical practices in the country. The Global Fund is the only provider of ARVs in Pakistan, and the surge in new infections has urgently increased the need for pediatric antiretrovirals.
A $40-million award to India from portfolio optimization will help India secure a $400-million loan from the World Bank, to fight tuberculosis. Loan 'buy-downs' are one of the innovative financing mechanisms that the Global Fund has been exploring as a way of increasing domestic financing and scaling up services in low- and middle-income countries. This is the Global Fund's first investment of this kind.
In January 2017, the Global Fund granted €3.6 million to the International Treatment Preparedness Coalition (ITPC) to implement a regional community treatment observatory in 11 West African countries. ITPC has recently released a new report, detailing key findings, analysis and advocacy opportunities from the first year and a half of grant implementation. The report highlights key gaps along the HIV care continuum, and shares advocacy success stories on the alleviation of stock-outs and improvements in facility-level data quality. The report's lead author explains.
Zimbabwe has recently undertaken reforms to reduce the ‘dollarization’ of its economy, and has just outlawed the use of any foreign currency. The change in monetary policy has negatively affected Global Fund grants, causing delays in aspects of grant implementation, increasing grants’ transaction costs, prompting accountability challenges, lowering healthcare worker morale, and reducing the state’s ability to procure ARVs.
The Global Fund has replaced the 'Grant Portfolio' section of its website with the Data Explorer, an interactive platform for examining Global Fund financing and for viewing the results of those investments. The new portal offers opportunities to refine and visualize data that were not previously available. Its developers say it should eventually expand to include more information on donor investments in the Global Fund and the ultimate impact of the Global Fund grants.
