Examples of our work in 2022
The Global Fund
A critical step towards breaking the cycle of HIV transmission. At the 7th triannual replenishment of the Global Fund for HIV, TB and Malaria, CIFF launched a major new partnership to scale bio-medical and behavioural interventions to break the cycle of HIV transmission. CIFF’s $33 million commitment will help expand access to PrEP in five priority countries in Africa. PrEP is a medicine that people at risk for HIV can take to prevent HIV infection. When taken as prescribed, PrEP reduces the risk of getting HIV from sex by about 99%.“The Global Fund has a track record of deploying well-governed public-private partnerships within its country-led approach to scale proven innovations,” said Chris Hohn, Founder of CIFF. “Equal access to lifesaving products like PrEP is, tragically, not a given across the world. Catalytic investments at the right time, with organizations like the Global Fund, can change this, increasing the impact of philanthropic funds and saving millions of lives.”
Expanding digital learning for girls in India - Mission Buniyaad, is a programme led by the Government of Rajasthan and supported by CIFF, which enables digital learning to help improve educational outcomes for girls. In 2022 it was agreed that, based on the programme’s success, it would be scaled up across the state and it is now set to reach up to one million girls.
