  Monday, November 26, 2007  by Admin
  In Southern Africa, the Global Fund has committed over $500 million to support programmes addressing HIV prevention, care and support and treatment. Yet little of the funding provided has been allocated to programs that reduce women's and girls' vulnerability to HIV infection and/or meet the gendered needs of women and girls living with HIV and AIDS to treatment, care, or legal resources and to address matters related to HIV status and gender inequality. To address this imbalance, OSISA, OSIEA and OSI Public Health Program are requesting proposals from coalitions of women’s rights and HIV and AIDS organizations in Southern Africa, Kenya, Tanzania, or Uganda that wish to develop proposals for submission to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria that address the specific vulnerabilities of women and girls and particularly marginalized groups of women and girls. Deadline is December 21st, 2007.
