Understanding how and why Georgia was (or was not) able to sustain coverage with the selected health interventions after transition and identify the enablers and barriers to this. To achieve this objective following research questions were defined:
Six country case studies examining how governments have responded (or not) to reductions in donor funding through changes in the service delivery architecture, health financing arrangements, information systems, and governance arrangements, and how these changes have or have not influenced whether effective coverage of priority interventions previously funded by donors is sustained or not.
why Georgia was able to sustain and increase adequate coverage with Opioid Substation Therapy (OST) previously funded by the Global Fund and identify the critical enablers.
The CIF research team publishes a new case study entitled “National Immunization Program (NIP) Transition from external assistance – Case Study from Georgia”.
The paper presents the iterative process of participatory multistakeholder engagement that informed the development of a new national tuberculosis (TB) policy in Georgia, and the lessons learned.
They produce medicines that can save lives and at the same time artificially restrict access to these drugs for financially deprived people and for countries that fall outside their commercial interests.
In June 2018 CIF initiated a new project with the financial support of The Global Fund. The overall goal of the CIF assignment is to support the Country Coordination Mechanism of Tajikistan (CCM) in assessing country preparedness for Transition and developing the Transition and Sustainability Plan based on this assessment and key steps identified.
Since May 2018 Curatio International Foundation implements a technical assistance for the Philippines to prepare Transition and Sustainability Plan for HIV program. The overall goal of the given assignment is to support the Department of Health and the Philippine National AIDS Council to develop the Transition and Financial Sustainability Plan based on the evaluation of remaining steps required to strengthen transition preparedness. The project is fulfilled in June 2018.
The assignment will last 10 months and aims to assess positive and negative implications of The Global Fund’s (TGF) Sustainability, Transition and Co-Financing Policy (STCP) that may have on TB commodity procurement practices on a country level in EECA region.
CIF will support R4D in conducting scoping literature review and interviews with partner organizations and country stakeholders to a) better understand current country processes, b) identify other country experiences regionally/ globally that would provide good learning opportunities; c) explore existing approaches, tools, and resources on identified technical topics; d) refine identified topics through understanding of country demand, experiences, and gaps in knowledge. This will be essential to better recognize what guidance and/or tools would be useful in addressing gaps. It is critical to ensure that the way of possible engagement is of interest and importance for most of the participant countries, and can lead to fruitful exchanges and products.
