Making an Investment Case for Domestic Resource Mobilization in Cambodia
In Cambodia, HP+ is working with in-country partners to develop two separate investment cases to support advocacy for increased domestic resources to combat tuberculosis (TB) and HIV. In March 2018, HP+ worked with the National Center for Tuberculosis and Leprosy Control to develop and validate appropriate service delivery scenarios, and review costing and programmatic data. This information will be used in conjunction with the TB TIME model to develop an investment case for TB and shape the government’s TB strategy for 2019–2023.
Separately, HP+ is also working on a subnational HIV investment case in a priority province to ensure the continuation of effective community-based prevention, care, and support services (CBPCS) as external support to the civil society organizations that provide these services declines. HP+, through an embedded HIV financing advisor, is working in collaboration with Cambodia’s National AIDS Authority to increase their analytical capacity to explore opportunities to develop domestic financing models. Potential opportunities could include direct funding from commune- (or village-) level governments for CBPCS services or alternative funding for civil society organizations to conduct these activities.
