If you are a funder, policy maker, government representative, technical adviser, implementer or community advocate, this satellite will leave you better informed of investment gaps and opportunities for children and adolescents. Now, more than ever, it is important to know that money is being allocated wisely. To be sure of value for money, that policies and commitments are being acted upon and to spot where investment opportunities remain. This satellite will preview new evidence on what is being spent, where, on what kinds of interventions, to what effect and what the gaps are. We will discuss government and donor funding in the priority countries of the Global Alliance to End AIDS in Children; private philanthropy; and the return on investment for “accelerator interventions” that achieve multiple outcomes simultaneously. Thank you to our satellite sponsor, ViiV Healthcare Positive Action.

FCAA’s Program & Research Manager Cat Gironda will participate to feature new FCAA data. 

Report Launch: Philanthropy’s Response to HIV and AIDS

Join Funders Concerned About AIDS (FCAA) for the official launch of the 21st edition of our signature resource tracking report – Philanthropy’s Response to HIV and AIDS: 2022 Grantmaking (July 2024). FCAA staff will dive into the headlines and what’s new in this year’s report. Next, key partners will reflect upon the data, share their own concerns, and discuss how the data can support the philanthropic response to HIV moving forward. We will also discuss how to leverage this new data for AIDS2024.

About the Report: For over two decades, FCAA’s annual resource tracking report has been a beacon illuminating the landscape of HIV-related philanthropy. Our goal is to create data-based evidence that will help funders align resources with critical needs and support the people and places most impacted by HIV.

When: Monday, July 22 from 14:00 to 15:00

Location – UNAIDS Meeting Room 12 (more details coming soon!)

When:  Tuesday, July 23 from 15:00-16:00

Location:Room 13a/Channel 6

Programme Link: https://programme.aids2024.org/Programme/Session/16 

Inequality, discrimination and poverty continue to drive the HIV pandemic and present the greatest barrier to ending HIV as a public health threat. Community-led organizations are at the forefront of the struggle for equity. This session will outline the growing challenges of: criminalization of key populations, stigma and discrimination; the challenges of first responses (including medical torture, loss of dignity and forced testing); the position of women with regards to marriage, access to treatment, prevention of vertical transmission and sex work; gender inequality and gender-based violence; access to information on health rights; and access to testing and treatment. The session will also highlight the vital role of community-led organizations in addressing these challenges.

FCAA Executive Director Masen Davis will present an intervention on: Unravelling the impact of anti-rights movements on the HIV response: A deep dive.

(AIDS2024 Workshop) Decolonizing HIV funding: Unlocking equitable resources for community-led organizations

When:  Thursday, July 24 from 14:30 – 16:30

Location:Room 14c/Channel 10

Programme Link:

HIV funding, like philanthropy and development assistance more broadly, is rooted in histories of colonialism that perpetuate racism and put decision-making power in the hands of those who have benefited most from colonialism and capitalism. The status quo of funding prevents communities from breaking out of short-term, project-based strategies for leading the HIV response. This workshop will explore methods to unlock equitable funding for community-led organizations through concrete changes to private, public and multilateral funding. The session seeks to build on a global, community-led call for a paradigm shift in the way funds are distributed and received.

FCAA Executive Director Masen Davis to faciliate. This session was created in partnership with the Stephen Lewis Foundation and UHAI.
