Announcement of SA Global Fund Principal Recipients to implement the 2019-2022 grant
On 9 October 2018, the South Africa Global Fund Country Coordinating Mechanism (SA GF CCM) endorsed Principal Recipients (PRs) to implement the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria request for funding that will cover the April 2019 – March 2022 period.
The Principal Recipients (PRs) are:
- National Department of Health
- AIDS Foundation South Africa (AFSA)
- Networking HIV and AIDS Community of Southern Africa (NACOSA)
- Beyond Zero
For HIV, the request focuses on delivering comprehensive and integrated service packages for key and vulnerable populations, including adolescent girls and young women, sex workers, men who have sex with men, transgender people and people who inject drugs. For TB, the investment is geared towards finding the missing people with TB, supporting the National Department of Health’s quality improvement plan. To ensure that these disease programs are implemented effectively and efficiently, supporting investments are requested to remove gender- and human rights-related barriers to access, and strengthen the country’s procurement and supply chain, health information systems, and community-led responses.
The investment is expected to contribute towards the achievement of targets in South Africa’s National Strategic Plan for HIV, TB and STIs 2017-2022.
