As donor budgets for HIV have flat-lined, funding for HIV services and programming has decreased, particularly in countries with higher income status and concentrated HIV epidemics. To examine the impact of recent or ongoing PEPFAR funding transitions on key populations, the USAID- and PEPFAR-funded Health Policy Project (HPP) hosted a global consultation with key population civil society networks and developed case studies on PEPFAR’s transitions in four countries: Bangladesh, Botswana, China, and Guyana. The case studies offers lessons learned on how donors can ensure the resiliency of HIV programming for key populations while undergoing funding transitions.
In addition, HPP developed the Readiness Assessment: Moving Toward a Country-led and –financed HIV Response for Key Populations. This guide is designed to assess the ability of a country’s stakeholders (including government, development partners, and civil society) to lead and sustain HIV epidemic control among key populations as donors transition to different levels and types of funding. The guide is a flexible tool that assesses readiness across four domains and focuses on the specific vulnerabilities of key populations.
