Blog Calls for Greater Focus on HIV Fund Efficiency

May 28, 2010

According to the New York Times' "On the Ground" blog "although much more funding is required for expansion of HIV efforts," a greater emphasis should be placed on looking closely "at how efficiently current funds are deployed." The blog writes, "For years the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria has been discussed in the same breath as the U.S. financing mechanism -- PEPFAR ... That conflation should end. The Global Fund puts countries themselves in the driver's seat. PEPFAR chooses its players -- mainly D.C.-based contractors -- and its rate of government collaboration varies dramatically. U.S. dollars should build capacity in other nations to take over these programs, not cultivate a legacy of dependency." Additionally, "The Global Fund and PEPFAR should be looking to strengthen the entire health system in poor countries, not merely those pieces that directly address HIV/AIDS," according to the blog (Ruxin, 5/24).
