Funder Collaborations Addressing HIV/AIDS: examples from around the world FUNDERS CONCERNED ABOUT AIDS Funder Collaborations Addressing HIV/AIDS: Examples from Around the World Founded in 1987, FCAA s mission is to mobilize philanthropic leadership, ideas, and resources, domestically and internationally, to eradicate the HIV/AIDS pandemic and to address its social and economic consequences. FCAA has become a leading voice and broker within U.S. philanthropy on both domestic and global HIV/AIDS issues and one of the most effective grantmaker affinity groups in U.S. philanthropy. FCAA s vision is to create a philanthropic sector that collaborates in an informed and urgent manner to ensure that the HIV/AIDS epidemic is halted and that communities already affected by it receive the resources they need. During 2008 and 2009, FCAA will work to broaden its support of collaboration among grantmakers on funding related to HIV and AIDS. FCAA invites grantmakers and others to visit to learn more about FCAA s work to encourage collaborations among HIV/AIDS grantmakers. 2 The following is a selection of grantmaking partnerships demonstrating how funders are collaborating to address HIV/AIDS around the world. These 19 case studies are offered as a sampling of a diverse and exciting array of grantmaker collaborations. FCAA encourages grantmakers and others to visit our website at to learn more about potential grantmaking partnerships related to HIV/AIDS. table of contents African Comprehensive HIV/AIDS Partnership (ACHAP) 3 African Women s Development Fund (AWDF) 5 Border AIDS Partnership 6 Chicago Housing for Health Partnership (CHHP) 7 Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative Global Pediatric Program 8 Coalition on Children Affected by AIDS 9 Funders Collaborative for Children in Malawi (FCFC) 10 Global Media AIDS Initiative (GMAI) African Broadcast Media Partnership Against HIV/AIDS (ABMP) Caribbean Broadcast Media Partnership on HIV/AIDS (CBMP) 11 HIV Collaborative Fund, Project of Tides Center 12 International Family AIDS Initiatives Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation 13 Joint Learning Initiative on Children and AIDS 14 MSM Initiative 15 National AIDS Fund 16 National Black AIDS Mobilization 17 Palliative Care 18 Strategic Alliances 19 Syringe Access Fund 20 Ukrainian Project for HIV+ Children and Their Families 21 World Association for Christian Communication (WACC) 22 3 African Comprehensive HIV/AIDS Partnership (ACHAP) Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Merck & Co. Inc (MSD) and Merck Company Foundation Ms. Lame Ramokate, Communications and Public Relations Officer African Comprehensive HIV/AIDS Partnership Tel: In 2000, the Government of Botswana, The Merck Company Foundation/Merck Sharp & Dohme (MSD), and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation established the African Comprehensive Partnerships (ACHAP) to support and enhance Botswana s response to the HIV and AIDS epidemic through a comprehensive approach to HIV and AIDS prevention, care, treatment, and support. The Merck Company Foundation and the Gates Foundation each have committed $56.5 million to the partnership. In addition, MSD is donating ARV medicines to Botswana s national ARV treatment program known as Masa (or dawn ) for the partnership s duration. While reducing the impact of HIV and AIDS will not happen overnight, results to date from Botswana are promising. Today, Masa is one of the largest national HIV treatment programs on the African continent, with 32 clinics and 54 satellite facilities in operation across the country. More than 3,200 physicians, nurses, and other health care professionals have received hands-on, clinic-based training from international HIV and AIDS experts through the partnership s preceptorship program. As of March 2008: More than 97,000 patients are receiving ARV treatment, representing the highest ARV coverage rate in Africa. When Masa began in 2002, less than 5 percent of those in need of ARV treatment received it. Adherence to treatment is among the highest in the world. AIDS mortality rates have been cut in half. Mother-to-child transmission has dropped from 40% to 4% between 2003 and There has been a reduction in HIV prevalence from 25 percent to 18 percent (a 28 percent 4 African Comprehensive HIV/AIDS Partnership (ACHAP) continued reduction) between the years 2003 and 2006 The strength of ACHAP lies in its full integration with government strategy and its ability to harness private-sector expertise in support of national efforts to address HIV and AIDS. Today, the lessons learned in Botswana are being applied to projects elsewhere to help governments, aid organizations, community groups and people living with HIV to address the challenges of this disease. Priorities for ACHAP in 2008 and beyond include scaling up prevention efforts, continued strengthening of the Masa program, incorporation of TB into the program, and further strengthening of post-test services. 5 African Women s Development Fund (AWDF) American Jewish World Service Carnegie Corporation of New York Comic Relief CORDAID Ford Foundation Global Fund for Women HIVOS John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Mama Cash Foundation Match International Mertz Gilmore Foundation Nelson Mandela Foundation New Field Foundation Open Society Institute Oxfam Novib Rockefeller Philanthropic Advisers Sigrid Rausing Foundation Sister Fund Stephen Lewis Foundation Tides Foundation Urgent Action Fund Bisi Adeleye-Fayemi, Executive Director, African Women s Development Fund Tel: African Women s Development Fund (AWDF) is a grantmaking foundation that supports local, national, and regional organizations in Africa working towards women s empowerment. AWDF, through institutional capacity-building and program development, seeks to build a culture of learning and partnership within the African women s movement. Established in June 2000, AWDF was the first Africa-wide fundraising and grantmaking fund. The objectives of AWDF are to fundraise within and outside Africa, make grants on an Africa-wide basis, communicate the work and achievements of African women s organizations, and provide technical assistance to grantees. Since 2000, AWDF has funded over 575 women s organizations in 41 African countries. 6 Border AIDS Partnership El Paso Community Foundation National AIDS Fund Mary Lou Moreno, Coordinator Border AIDS Partnership Tel: The El Paso Community Foundation and the U.S./ Mexico Border Health Association partnered in 1994 to create a local HIV/AIDS partnership that would provide assistance to nonprofit organizations in the surrounding region working on this critical health problem. The resulting collaboration, with support from the National AIDS Fund, created the Border AIDS Partnership (BAP), a bi-national and tri-state funding collaborative that has been providing funding for HIV/AIDS education and prevention activities in El Paso, Texas, Southern New Mexico, and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Since 1996, the BAP has distributed more than $1 million to support innovative HIV prevention programs in our region. 7 Chicago Housing for Health Partnership (CHHP) AIDS Foundation of Chicago Michael Reese Health Trust Chicago Community Trust Polk Brothers Foundation HUD Homeless Programs Arturo Valdivia Bendixen, Director Chicago Housing for Health Partnership Tel: Begun in November 2002 with a six-month pilot run generously supported by the Michael Reese Health Trust and the AIDS Foundation of Chicago, the Chicago Housing for Health Partnership (CHHP) was developed by a 15 member coalition of housing, healthcare, and respite care providers to establish 120 new supportive housing units in Chicago through federal and private funds. The first of its kind in the nation, the project has since gained national recognition as a cost-effective model for providing housing and a comprehensive array of health and social services for chronically-ill homeless individuals. By actively offering coordinated housing and intensive case management, medical, and support services to a targeted set of high-need populations, CHHP is demonstrating improved health outcomes and lower long-term health utilization costs. 8 Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative Global Pediatric Program Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative UNITAID Anil Soni, CEO Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative Tel: Despite high mortality half of HIV-positive children die without treatment by age two, and 80% by age five only one in 40 children had access to treatment in That year, the Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative (CHAI) launched a pediatric program in response to this situation. In 2006, CHAI secured large-scale funding from UNITAID, a multi-lateral donor and international drug purchasing facility supported by 27 governments including France, Norway, the UK, Brazil, and Chile. UNITAID is committing more than $200 million to the purchase of pediatric AIDS drugs and tests through 2010, making large volumes of these commodities immediately available to partner governments and dramatically leveraging the contributions of our original donors. Eighteen months later, over 16,000 new children had been placed on treatment across 16 countries, and in 2007, CHAI and UNITAID partnered to expand the program to 33 countries with funds to buy commodities for an order of magnitude more children than CHAI alone could support. As a result, CHAI helped to double the number of David Soul/Clinton Foundation children on treatment across these 33 countries, to 135,000 in total. Today, one in four children globally has access to treatment. This progress was made possible by building the necessary systems to treat children at scale, including expanding infant diagnosis, increasing the number of pediatric treatment sites by 50% and by training 6,000 healthcare workers across these 33 countries. In 2007, UNITAID agreed to extend this program through 2010 with a $180 million commitment, with a 2008 goal of reaching 75,000 new children. 9 Coalition on Children Affected by AIDS Bernard van Leer Foundation Children Affected by AIDS Foundation ELMA Philanthropies Firelight Foundation Nelson Mandela Children s Fund Rockefeller Brothers Fund John Miller, Coordinator Coalition on Children Affected by AIDS Tel: The Coalition on Children Affected by AIDS (CCABA) is a collective of private and public foundations and regranting organizations in the North and South, working to improve the lives of children infected by and affected by HIV/AIDS, aided by key technical experts. CCABA coordinates closely with other child-focused initiatives, including UNICEF s Unite for Children, Unite Against AIDS campaign, and the Joint Learning Initiative on Children and AIDS. CCABA focuses on the International AIDS Conference as an agenda-setting event, raising the profile of children at the conference and improving the scope and quality of evidence presented at the conference by child-focused organizations. CCABA has also played a major role in the funding and design of a regular two-day preconference symposium on children and AIDS, starting with the 2006 AIDS Conference in Toronto. Considerable momentum was gained at the Toronto AIDS Conference, and further progress is expected in Mexico in CCABA also helps child-focused participants effectively navigate through and contribute to the AIDS conferences (which are complex events involving as many as 25,000), and helps provide information on the conferences to child-focused organizations worldwide that are not able to attend. 10 Funders Collaborative for Children in Malawi (FCFC) The Children s Investment Fund Foundation Comic Relief The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund Elton John AIDS Foundation (UK) David Walker, Interim Acting Programme Director Tel: +265 (0) Launched in 2006, the Funders Collaborative for Children in Malawi aims to address the complete needs of orphans and vulnerable children (OVC), from the earliest stage of life to the point at which they can thrive independently. Working through local partner organizations, it is implementing an integrated model of treatment, care, and support for children and young people, working within existing structures and systems and strengthening these as necessary. The four program dimensions are health, education, social welfare, and livelihoods. Each of the grantmakers has made an allocation of 2.5 million over five years to this initiative. The program is initially targeting two districts: Salima and Thyolo. By 2011, the program aims to reach 65% of all orphaned and vulnerable children in each district with HIV-related interventions. The FCFC aims to demonstrate the value of an integrated approach and also the advantages of donors working collaboratively. It has therefore commissioned an evaluation of the program in Malawi and of the Collaborative itself. 11 Global Media AIDS Initiative (GMAI) African Broadcast Media Partnership Against HIV/AIDS (ABMP) Caribbean Broadcast Media Partnership on HIV/AIDS (CBMP) Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Coca-Cola Africa Foundation Elton John AIDS Foundation (U.S.) Ford Foundation The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation Merck Company Foundation Nelson Mandela Children s Foundation Tina Hoff, Director of Entertainment Media Partnerships The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation Tel: The Global Media AIDS Initiative (GMAI) and its corresponding regional responses in Africa and the Caribbean represents a unique model of collaboration among some of the leading foundations involved in HIV/AIDS. By combining financial resources, the GMAI s partners are able to take a more coordinated approach to working with media around the world in disseminating lifesaving information about prevention, testing and treatment, and stigma. In addition to operational and financial contributions by the The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, the GMAI also receives support from the Ford Foundation and Gates Foundation. Other funding partners provide additional resources for select regional initiatives: notably, the Coca-Cola Africa Foundation, Merck Company Foundation, and Nelson Mandela Children s Foundation for the African Broadcast Media Partnership Against HIV/AIDS (ABMP), and the Elton John AIDS Foundation (U.S.) for the Caribbean Broadcast Media Partnership on HIV/AIDS (CMBP). 12 HIV Collaborative Fund, Project of Tides Center AIDS Fonds Netherlands Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Elton John AIDS Foundation (U.S.) Ford Foundation Gagarin Family Trust Guttag Family Foundation John M. Lloyd Foundation Johnson & Johnson Open Society Institute Overbrook Foundation Starry Night Fund Stephen Lewis Foundation World Health Organization David Barr, Director HIV Collaborative Fund Tel: Established in 2003, the HIV Collaborative Fund is a global community-driven funding mechanism supporting HIV treatment advocacy and education in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Latin America, and Eastern Europe/Central Asia. The HIV Collaborative Fund finances community-based organizations support in each of 11 regions, and support to regional networks for informationsharing, collaboration, and technical assistance. Awarding more than $2 million in small grants every year, the HIV Collaborative Fund has granted more that $6 million in small grants to approximately 600 treatment education and advocacy projects in nearly 70 different countries. The HIV Collaborative Fund represents the first time that a global coalition of people living with AIDS has developed a funding mechanism that will allows them to set funding priorities and implement their strategies. People living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) lead all aspects of the Collaborative Fund activities, and more than 100 community-based and regional organizations around the world participate in grantmaking decisions. 13 International Family AIDS Initiatives Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation Abbott Fund Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Boehringer Ingelheim Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation Eastman Kodak Company Jewelers for Children Johnson & Johnson Oprah Winfrey Foundation Ronald McDonald House Charities Trish Karlin, Vice President, Program Implementation Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation Tel: Founded in 1988 to prevent pediatric HIV infection and to eradicate pediatric AIDS, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation launched a Call to Action in 1999 to bring simplified regimens for prevention of mother-to-child HIV transmission (PMTCT) to developing countries. In response to this Call to Action, private funding partnerships helped to initiate PMTCT programs in more than 20 countries. Many of these national programs have since secured sustained bilateral and multilateral funding and measureable achievements in PMTCT coverage. At more than 2,800 sites around the world, as of the end of 2007 the Foundation s programs have reached nearly 4.8 million women with access to PMTCT services, and have enrolled more than 365,000 individuals, including more than 30,000 children, into care and treatment programs. Of those ever enrolled, 198,000 have begun antiretroviral therapy (ART). Several philanthropic funders, including Abbott Fund, Boehringer Ingelheim, Jewelers for Children, Johnson & Johnson, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, continue to invest in the Foundation s International Family AIDS Initiatives, complementing governmental funding. Private funding allows the Foundation and its partners to fill key gaps in government funding, including work in countries that lack PEPFAR support. 14 Joint Learning Initiative on Children and AIDS Bernard van Leer Foundation Fondation François-Xavier Bagnoud Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Alayne Adams, JLICA Secretariat Tel: +33 (45) Alec Irwin, JLICA Secretariat Formally launched in October 2006, the Joint Learning Initiative on Children and AIDS (JLICA) is a cross-sectoral interdisciplinary exercise in collaboration among leading practitioners, policymakers, and scholars concerned with the wellbeing of children living in a world with HIV/AIDS. JLICA s goal is to protect and fulfill the rights of children affected by HIV/AIDS by mobilizing the scientific evidence base and producing actionable recommendations for policy and practice. Private foundations played a key role in establishing the JLICA, providing seed funding, helping to convene key organizations and individuals, identifying potential learning group chairs, and helping to develop the JLICA s conceptual framework. Foundation funding was able to get the Initiative started, but larger amounts (over $1 million per year) were needed to make it work; foundations played a key role in securing this funding from three bilateral donors Ireland, the UK, and the Netherlands. The Joint Learning Initiative model allows foundation funding to be leveraged very effectively; coordinates foundation, academic, and bilateral funder action; and brings together an interdisciplinary team capable of agenda-changing knowledge generation. A foundation investment in such a model has a great potential for influencing policy and funding. 15 MSM Initiative Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation Elton John AIDS Foundation Foundation for AIDS Research (amfar) GlaxoSmithKline Positive Action Open Society Institute Jeffrey Stanton, Director, MSM Initiative amfar Tel: Launched in 2007, the MSM Initiative supports direct services, advocacy, and research aimed at providing HIV/AIDS prevention, care, and support services for men who have sex with men (MSM) in low- and middle-income countries. During the past year, guided by in-region community peer review processes, the MSM Initiative awarded more than $350,000 in small grants to 17 grassroots groups in Africa, Southeast Asia, and the Caribbean to implement HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, care, and mobilization efforts among MSM. Efforts are currently underway to distribute similar grants to groups in Latin America and the rest of Asia and the Pacific. 16 National AIDS Fund Elton John AIDS Foundation (U.S.) Ford Foundation Johnson & Johnso
