Funding the AIDS Response
Robust funding is critical to support domestic and global HIV/AIDS programs and research
African Union Catalytic Framework
The objective of the Catalytic Framework is to intensify implementation of the Abuja +12 commitments on HIV, TB and Malaria by building Africa-wide consensus on key strategic actions within the context of the existing targets and milestones. It takes into account the Sustainable development goals (SDGs) and the 2016 United Nations Political Declaration on Ending HIV and AIDS. EGPAF continues to work closely with AIDS Watch Africa (AWA) to ensure that children are prioritized in the response by the African Union and the member states. EGPAF is a member of the AWA steering committee that has consultative status to provide the AWA Heads of States and Governments with expertise and counsel in implementing their mandate to lead advocacy, accountability and resource mobilization efforts to respond to TB, HIV and Malaria.
President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief
The U.S. is the single largest funder of HIV/AIDS activities around the world. EGPAF advocates on Capitol Hill and to the Administration for a strong bi-lateral global HIV/AIDS response through PEPFAR, USAID and CDC, as well as multilateral commitments through the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
Increasing Resources for Pediatric HIV
EGPAF has been advocating with major donors like The Global Fund and PEPFAR for increased prioritization of pediatric HIV prevention and treatment in their funding allocations. An analysis of the last Global Fund funding cycle demonstrated insufficient support for EMTCT and pediatric HIV treatment.
