According to World Health Organisation, maternal mortality, burden of diseases with other non-communicable diseases are the major challenges militating against the development of any developing nations of the world.

With the effort of reducing the high rate of diseases to the barest minimum, Association for Reproductive and Family Health with the support of Global Fund has introduced the best form model to encounter these challenges.

This was made known at an entry meeting with the Lagos State Primary Health Care Board in Lagos.

The meeting that involved all Heads of Unit/Directorates from A&HR, Health Education, MLSU, Pharmaceutical Services, Monitoring & Evaluation, DDMS, Community Health, SIO, PHO, IPO, OPDO, Head of Nursing and MOHs from 12 selected LGA explored ways to implement in partnership with other organizations, sustainable demand generation activities and community mobilization for pregnant women and the general population in the 12 selected LGAs in Lagos State.

Speaking during the program, the Coordinator for Monitoring and Evaluation at Association for Reproductive and Family Health Dr. Abiodun Hassan expatiate the roles of the Global Fund funding model.

According to him “The new funding model places emphasis on improving collaboration and integration of TB malaria and HIVAIDS intervention in Nigeria to all levels of government. It entails expansion of services and also emphasizes making rapid impart and showing efficiency and value for money within the period particularly looking at privatization of the state and local, community for intervention. It is so innovative that we can achieve better result with it and it is advancement on previous grants in the past”

He re-emphasized the roles of Our ARFH which is to promote and implement in partnership with other organizations, developmental, HIV & AIDS, SRH and family planning program and interventions for young people and adult through capacity building, technical assistance, operations research, and evaluation to improve the quality of life in Nigeria and elsewhere in Africa.

Hassan said that the Global Fund works with countries to support programs of prevention, treatment and care for AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria and to strengthen health systems and the funding model is based on allocations.

“Starting from the country’s national strategic plan, stakeholders participate in an ongoing and inclusive country dialogue. This dialogue will serve as the basis for developing a funding application known as a concept note. After a thorough evaluation by a group of independent experts, implementers work with the Global Fund to develop a road map for implementation so that when grants are submitted to the Board for final approval and funding, it is considered ready to receive its first disbursement”, he said.

He said further that there is also active involvement on the part of the Global Fund and technical partners to ensure that countries design and implement the most robust and effective response to the three diseases.

“The Global Fund was created to bring additional resources to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria to those countries and communities most in need. Because one of our core principles is the concept of country ownership, we provide funding at the country or regional level only.”
