INVESTMENT CASES ACCELERATE TRANSFORMATION
Investment cases promote the scaling up of optimally effective, rights-based responses that enhance equity and inclusiveness and overcome barriers for the populations most in need of services.
SMART INVESTMENTS RESPOND TO SPECIFIC EPIDEMICS AND YIELD HIGH RETURNS
Countries are focusing investments on high-burden regions and populations and optimizing the mix and coverage of interventions to maximize impact.
THE INVESTMENT APPROACH FOSTERS INNOVATION
Countries are leveraging the investment approach to reduce commodity costs, alter delivery systems, integrate services and decrease overhead expenses.
INVESTMENT CASES REFLECT AND PROMOTE SHARED RESPONSIBILITY
Countries are exploring new funding mechanisms, mobilizing additional resources and bolstering domestic contributions to ensure more sustainable funding and achieve shared responsibility.
What is an investment approach? What is an investment case?
An investment approach:
- Maximizes the returns of investment in the HIV response
- Allocates resources towards combinations of interventions that will achieve the greatest impact
- Enhances equity and impact by focusing efforts on key locations and populations with the greatest needs
- Improves the efficiency of HIV prevention, treatment, care and support programmes
- Uses empirical evidence and modelling to identify priorities and gaps
- Enables countries to secure sustainable funding for HIV programmes
- Provides the framework to align government domestic funding strategies for the medium and long term with donor-supported efforts
An investment case:
- Is an instrument for strategic decision-making around resource allocation, resource mobilization, service delivery and funding
- Can be articulated in a variety of forms, based on countries’ specific contexts and needs
- Is a means of demonstrating national leadership in the response
- Unites diverse stakeholders including Ministries of Finance, Health, Development and Planning; Civil Society; people living with HIV; and international partners
- Articulates a common effort to identify programmatic gaps and bottlenecks and to create a roadmap for action
- Is sometimes different from a national strategic plan, which often includes an extensive and aspirational articulation of needs and is constrained by set time-frames
