Innovative finance programs to increase accessibility to HIV treatments in Africa
With great excitement, we share with you that Kirtimay Pendse – Alumni Batch 2015 is currently interning with the UNAIDS' (Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS) at Geneva, Switzerland.
The team he will be working with is called Programme Partnerships, Innovation and Fundraising. His team is working on innovative finance programs to increase accessibility to HIV treatments in Africa and helping build partnerships with funds and sponsors. The team's main focus is divided into various areas: they are focusing on transition funding (moving from international aid to increasing domestic investment for HIV treatments). UNAIDS has many donors, ranging from countries, to World Bank to other foundations like Bill and Melinda Gates.
Kirtimay's work will be centred on working on and updating the Donor Intelligence Map
We wish him best of luck for this project and we are sure he will win hearts through his work in the true PATHWAYSIAN STYLE!!!!
