CALL FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST

The Philippines is one of 20 countries that the Global Fund has prioritised for the
provision of intensive support to scale up comprehensive programs to reduce human
rights-related barriers to health services. An in-depth baseline assessment was carried
out from December 2017 to April 2018 which provided data about the human rights-
related barriers to HIV and TB services in the Philippines and any existing programs for
their elimination.
In order to address human rights related barriers to health services, Global Fund
provided an initiative called the Matching Fund Request (MFR). The framework of the
proposed MFR is that an empowered community and its champions can trigger
concrete changes in practices towards addressing HIV related human barriers. The
MFR focus will be (a) Legal Literacy to address insufficient information (especially rights
of people who inject drugs to services) (b) Monitoring, Documenting and Reporting
towards improving current practices (e.g. treatment discrimination) as well as strengthen
access to Justice to address fear of violence and loss of freedom (relevant to all people
living with HIV and key population, particularly people who inject drugs community (c)
Support to implementation of enabling policies and programs (e.g., proxy consent for
minors and understanding OHAT treatment package, including for PLHIV injecting drug
users).
