|Overview : |
UNDP partners with the Global Fund to Fights, AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (the Global Fund) to support and strengthen national responses to HIV, tuberculosis and malaria. The objective of this partnership is to ensure access to quality health services for all and to enable all those living or affected by the diseases to live healthy and productive lives while enjoying full social inclusion. The partnership leverages UNDP’s global mandate to strengthened institutions to deliver universal access to basic services and to rebuilding resilient and sustainable health and community systems in crisis and post-crisis settings.
In South Sudan, UNDP has been the Principal Recipient (PR) of Global Fund grants on behalf of the Government of South Sudan (GOSS) since 2004 when the Global Fund's Additional Safeguards Policy was applied limiting the role of national entities to function in this capacity. Since then, working in partnership the Ministry of Health (MOH) and other national stakeholders, UNDP has been managing the Global Fund's support for HIV, TB and Resilient and Sustainable Systems for Health (RSSH) programmes in South Sudan. This support is aimed at providing TB and HIV services and strengthening the country’s health and community systems. Under the current allocation period 2018-2020, UNDP as PR manages a grant portfolio of US$50 million and supports the MOH and other partners to implement HIV and TB programmes across the health sector.
In May 2020, the South Sudan Country Coordination Mechanism (CCM) submitted a Funding Request for the next Global Fund allocation period running from 2021-2023. The total value of the submission was US$71 million to sustain and expand HIV, TB and RSSH programmes. After receiving a positive review from the Global Fund's Technical Review Panel, negotiations will soon begin to finalise the grant agreement so that implementation may begin in January 2021.
To prepare for this negotiation, UNDP, as the PR for the new grant, is moving to put in place the necessary implementation arrangements. For this reason, it is seeking submissions from qualified non-governmental organisations and other registered entities in South Sudan to participate in the implementation of the grant as Sub-Recipients (SRs).
