Devex: PEPFAR chief wants 70 percent ‘indigenous’ funding in 30 months
“…Deborah Birx, the U.S. global AIDS coordinator, has directed U.S. agencies involved in the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief to reach a benchmark of directing 40 percent of their PEPFAR funding to ‘indigenous’ organizations — those based in the developing countries where the programs are operating — in the next 18 months, and to reach 70 percent indigenous funding in the next 30 months. Birx shared those targets, which have not previously been reported, with attendees at the Christian Connections for International Health conference in Baltimore, Maryland, on Friday…” (Igoe, 7/16).
