Donor transitions from HIV programs: What is the impact on vulnerable populations?

Over the past several months the Center for Policy Impact in Global Health has been working in partnership with Pharos Global Health Advisors  to conduct an in-depth study of HIV donor transitions and key populations. This study was one of the first to look in depth at the risks and challenges of HIV transitions for key populations, examining three countries that recently “graduated” from donor assistance for HIV (China, Mexico, Romania) and another three (Nigeria, Malaysia, and Cambodia) that are scheduled to transition soon.  Based on the lessons learned from those countries that have already undergone transition and the emerging themes from pre-transition countries, our findings suggest that donors and middle-income countries should work together to develop a more systematic approach to preparing for, designing, and implementing transition programs for key populations.
