The Government of Suriname has seen a decline in donor funding for the HIV response. Due to this decline, since early 2019, HIV services for key populations provided by civil society organizations (CSOs) have decreased. Without prompt and decisive action by the Government of Suriname—by directly funding CSOs to provide services—the number of new HIV cases will increase and the gains made by the national HIV response over the past decades will be lost. To reduce the funding gap caused by declining donor funding, the Ministry of Health is planning to fund services for key populations through social contracting of CSOs. This brief outlines 10 concrete milestones for the Ministry of Health and CSOs to successfully implement social contracting.
