2017 - RfP International - IP barriers


2017 Call for Proposals: Challenging intellectual property barriers that prevent access to treatment for people living with HIV in Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Indonesia, Myanmar, Vietnam, Bangladesh and/or Ukraine.

This call for proposals directly contributes to two of the four long-term goals identified in the Aidsfonds strategic plan: a strong Civil Society and fewer barriers to access treatment, care and support. The strategic plan focusses on realising our vision: the end of AIDS in a world where all people affected by HIV and STIs access prevention, treatment, care and support.

Organisations that meet the definitions and criteria set by this call for proposals are invited to apply for a grant to support the proposed programmes for three years (2018-2020). Proposals should build towards one or more of the following longer term goals:

* Repelling harmful provisions in free trade agreements;
* Incorporating flexibilities in national patent laws;
* Ensuring that existing flexibilities are used, including the opposition to new patents or issuing compulsory licenses.
