Social Contracting: Supporting Domestic Public Financing for Civil Society’s Role in the HIV Response

Health Policy Plus (HP+)

One policy reform aimed at maintaining the critical role of civil society in the HIV response in concert with domestic resource mobilization efforts is the development of government-led mechanisms to finance civil society through formalized contractual channels. Such partnerships between governments and civil society are widely referred to as “social contracting.” HP+ is providing technical assistance to countries to best prepare for donor transitions and help governments and civil society organizations with understanding and implementing social contracting through financial and policy means.
