BANGKOK, Friday 22 November 2013 —To keep an effective and efficient HIV response on Nepal’s national agenda as a national public good beyond 2015, the “Nepal HIV Investment Plan” is about moving from what we know to what we do.
The Nepal HIV Investment Plan 2014-2016 is a forceful case for strategic investments in Nepal’s HIV response that includes a three year operational plan and budget. The plan, presented today in Bangkok, at the 11th International Congress on AIDS in Asia and the Pacific, is a renewed call for coordinated action from the public and private sectors, civil society and international partners to reduce Nepal’s HIV burden. Nepal’s investment plan was developed in the context of the downward trend in global HIV funding, the introduction of the Global Fund to fight AIDS, TB and Malaria requirements for a cost-sharing performance-based approach, and the projected resource gap for carrying out the last three years of Nepal’s HIV Strategy 2011-2016. In summary: It is Nepal’s strategically prioritised approach to HIV programming, budgeting and implementation.
