The “Technical consultation on transition to domestic funding of HIV and TB responses and their programmatic sustainability in EECA” took place in Istanbul on 21 – 22 of July 2015 and was organized by The Secretariat of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria together with the Eurasian Harm Reduction Network (EHRN).

The aim of the consultation was to lay the foundation for the development of a feasible framework for sustainability planning and responsible transition from Global Fund support to national funding in EECA, including such key parameters as principles, processes, algorithms/mechanisms, timelines, specific areas and sources of required technical support that would ensure the success of the transition leading to financial and programmatic sustainability of HIV and TB responses. The consultation gathered key stakeholders, including national government agencies, donor organizations, technical support providers, UN agencies, civil society and communities, to discuss transition and sustainability in Eastern Europe and Central Asia (EECA).
