Lessons learnt

  • CCM

    • hard to put in place quickly

    • needs to have broad representation including government, civil society, PLWA, private sector and international partners

    • need to involve everyone from the beginning

  • ensure patronage of high political leaders

Budget and financial management

  • Identify a trustworthy financial management institution

  • Identify a potential auditing mechanism to ensure transparency

  • Involve donors, UN and other partners to identify ‘gaps’ and ‘additionality’

  • It helps to have an NSP with a budget and costing information

  • Provide additional detailed budget information for each element (in annexes)

Quality of application

  • Link application to NSP

  • Partnership between government, NGOs, UN and international partners

  • Identify a top-quality writer to draft application

  • Ensure technical input from UN system and all relevant partners

  • Include well known ‘star’ NGOs – this gives legitimacy

Quality of application

  • Combine intensive ‘scientific’ aspects (e.g. PIH – Harvard) and

  • ‘Extensive’ service delivery aspects (e.g. MOH – GHESKIO)

Quality of application

  • Combine prevention and care

  • Include solid monitoring and evaluation plans

  • Include annexes with additional detailed information, workplans and budgets for each element/partner
