Algeria’s HIV program has matured and strengthened in recent years, but there are still some fundamental challenges to achieving global and national targets, such as the 90-90-90 treatment cascade. As Algeria’s average national income increases, the Global Fund and other international donors are preparing to transition funding out of the country. The national HIV response in Algeria is hence essential to the country’s long-term success in combatting the HIV epidemic.
Building the four most essential domains in the transition with national stakeholders, the Pharos team built a detailed action plan on (i) Political will, governance, and legal frameworks and human rights, (ii) Financing, (iii) Civil society organizations, and (iv) Service provision and information systems. In each domain, the team recommended a list of activities, worked with stakeholders to agree upon performance indicators, lead and supporting agencies, timeframe, and funding sources.
With this action plan in hand, the government has been able to implement some recommendations and improve the long-term sustainability of the national HIV program.
