This report is the second publication in a series where we examine funding shortages for TB and HIV programmes in Eastern Europe and Central Asia (EECA).The first publication, “Bridging the Gap: Whythe European Union must address the Global Fund’s funding crisis to tackle the escalating HIV and TB epidemics in Eastern Europe and Central Asia” explored the cancellation of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria’s eleventh funding window in 2011 and how this left some countries without the financial support needed to aggressively combat their disease epidemics. This report builds on our previous publication by analysing three cases studies to demonstrate the continued impact of TB and HIV in the region and to show the effects of international donor aid diminishing in middle-income countries. The current situation for TB and HIV programmes in the region remains serious. These diseases urgently require sustained political and financial support from both domestic and international sources, including regional level aid from the European Union.

The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria, historically the largest international donor for TB and HIV programmes in the EECA region, has adopted a New Funding Model (NFM) that will significantly reduce the amount of support available for middle-income countries. This includes support to civil society organisations that deliver TB and HIV services and are essential to creating environments where national governments are held accountable for properly addressing the health needs of their citizens. A Global Fund modelling of funding allocations under the NFM indicated that just three percent of total resources would be allocated to EECA. This represents a 50 percent decrease compared with what was previously available.
