Abstract:

Investing for impact is an explicit goal of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. The institution’s strategy for 2012 to 2016 focuses on countries and populations where interventions promise maximum rewards for public health. As part of this “New Funding Model,” the Global Fund is asking applicant countries seeking financing to more accurately  demonstrate where and how their HIV programs will yield significant, measurable improvements in limiting the spread of the virus. Accomplishing this will depend to a great extent on each country’s ability to use geospatial analysis of epidemiological data to target resources to areas with the greatest need.

Not all countries seeking Global Fund support have extensive experience with geospatial analysis. To address this gap, the Health Policy Project (HPP)—funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)—is working with 9 countries eligible for Global Fund support to strengthen their use of geospatial analysis in HIV policymaking and in strategic, financial, and program planning.
