Inter-regional workshop in preparation for transitioning towards domestic financing in TB, HIV and Malaria programmes

During October 17-19 the WHO Regional Office for Europe in collaboration with WHO headquarters, GFATM and USAID organised a workshop in Tbilisi to provide countries a platform for dialogue on sustainability and transition issues, and to further define regional and national actions for successful transition from external support while maintaining and scaling up efforts in addressing HIV, TB and Malaria.  The workshop was organized in the framework of WHO and the GFATM Cooperation and Financing Agreement.

This event aimed to provide a platform for countries and key partners to exchange good practices and lessons learned in transitioning from external to domestic financing of TB, HIV and Malaria response within the context of the Universal Health and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
