SFI - Global Brief

Speeches Shim

Funded by the United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the Sustainable Financing Initiative for HIV/ AIDS (SFI) aims to increase sustainability of the HIV response by promoting shared financial responsibility with host country governments. Since 2014, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has implemented SFI in 16 countries and two regional programs, with a budget of nearly $48 million.

To help countries advance on the path to self-reliance as they reduce the HIV burden, SFI has focused on three pillars: Public Financial Management, Private Sector Engagement, and Financial Protection. Its work has given people living with HIV (PLHIV) more access to care and has helped increase the efficiency of existing investments. The impact of this work spans three cross cutting themes: generating evidence for advocacy, increasing security of HIV commodities, and improving the efficiency of HIV spending.
