willingness to pay
Under the new co-financing requirements (previously called “counterpart financing requirements”) adopted by The Global Fund, countries no longer have to meet a minimum threshold expressed as a percentage of the cost of the national programs for HIV, TB, and malaria.
Aidspan has published a report on how The Global Fund’s willingness-to-pay (WTP) policy is being operationalized at country level. The report is based on an analysis of case studies which Aidspan conducted in 13 countries, plus information provided by The Global Fund Secretariat.
Special arrangements established for funding applications from four Middle East countries and territories
The Global Fund Board has waived certain requirements for processing HIV and TB funding applications from Iraq, Palestine, Syria, and Yemen because of the current political context and challenging operating environments in these countries and territories. The requirements that have been waived relate to country coordinating mechanism eligibility, counterpart financing, and willingness to pay.
In developing its new national strategy for HIV/AIDS, Moldova is, equally, drafting a transition plan that is predicated on the assumption that there will be no more Global Fund support for prevention, treatment and care interventions from 2018.
