Role of FTF in coordinating partner inputs and assuring funds for financial sustainability work to be transfered to partner(s) with their future roles and responsibilities clearly defined.

Responsible entity: Financing Task Force (FTF)
Completed by: December 2005
Total budget: $400,000

Target description and how it will help reach GAVI milestones

Since June 2000, the FTF has been the coordinating mechanism for multiple partner inputs into the financial sustainability work. In 2005, the FTF will disband. The revised target has two components: 1) ensuring that the FTF management and coordination of the financial sustainability effort is transitioned to a partner(s) and 2) that the roles of all partners be clearly defined at hand-off.

ALL MILESTONES: Building institutional capacity around financial sustainability to support immunization programs is indirectly, but concretely supporting achievement of milestones.

Justification for selection of activities

Financial sustainability planning is a new activity developed by the FTF. To ensure that support to countries continues in this area after the FTF completes its term in 2005, the process needs to be mainstreamed into partners’ work plans. Therefore, a plan of action outlining how individual partners at the global and regional level can continue to support the financial sustainability process is required.

A forum to share the GAVI experience around financial sustainability issues among countries, partners, and other global initiatives is optional.
