Domestic Resource Mobilization (DRM) Learning Collaborative – Save the Date!

December 6, 2022

Coming off World AIDS Day, we are reminded of the importance of robust domestic investment in all aspects of the HIV response, including research and development (R&D), to see an end to the epidemic and build sustainable systems for health. This Thursday, December 8 at 15:00 PM EAT / 14:00 PM SAST/ 13:00 PM WAT / 7:00 AM EDT marks the launch of the inaugural Domestic Resource Mobilization (DRM) Learning Collaborative.

The collaborative builds on work with our partners in both the COMPASS and CASPR programs and will be a facilitated virtual space that brings together global health advocates, civil society organizations and other key stakeholders from Africa to engage in peer-to-peer learning and collaboration. We will explore priority topics, including: local investments in HIV services and other health infrastructure; pandemic preparedness; and research and development (R&D). And we will use the time to explore opportunities and frame what questions must be answered to develop a unifying advocacy agenda. This comes exactly a month after Africa Health Week where over 80 community members and leaders came together online each day to reflect on lessons learned and best practices in health R&D.

You won’t want to miss this opportunity to build on what was learned and brainstorm with community leaders and advocates on ways to advance health R&D investment in Africa.
