The discussion will take place over 10 days from July 4 – 13, 2012.
The New Investment Framework for the Global HIV Response (NIF) is being widely adopted and promoted by key partners, donors and stakeholders across the region. It is intended to facilitate more focused and strategic use of scarce resources, and sets out a model for HIV investment and HIV programming for the next decade, based on existing evidence of what works in HIV prevention, treatment, care and support.
This online discussion aims to:
- facilitate a wider regional knowledge and understanding of the Framework and its key components
- foster a regional dialogue on the Framework and explore the avenues by which children’s care and support issues can be more fully and clearly included within the Framework’s rationale i.e. critical enablers, programmatic areas, and synergies
The discussion will be structured around 3 main topics:
- What is the New Investment Framework? Examination of the components and rationale of the NIF.
- What are the gaps relating to the care, support and protection for children affected by HIV in the New Investment Framework? Determining the regional priority areas and defining what evidence is needed to support advocacy for their inclusion in the NIF.
- How to engage with, and advocate for better inclusion of vulnerable children and HIV priority areas within the Framework? Who are the key stakeholders to engage, what are the specific entry points, and what is now required to move forward?
Guest experts participating in the discussion include:
- Mike Podmore – International HIV/AIDS Alliance
- Kate Iorpenda – International HIV/AIDS Alliance
The outcomes of the discussion will be documented and used to develop a brief on the vulnerable children and HIV and the NIF.
