The MSF “UNITAID pool” is a team of two that serves all MSF sections and entities within the partnerships between MSF and UNITAID. The pool manages two UNITAID grants involving 20 different projects over 11 countries, and directly involving most MSF entities with strong involvements of OCB, OCG, OCP, OCA and Epicentre.
Under the supervision of the UNITAID Portfolio Manager (MSF employee, based in Geneva), the UNITAID Financial Focal Point and procurement reporting officer will be working to support the MSF UNITAID-funded programmes.
He/she is the focal point for all finance issues and for the reporting on procurement questions related to all of the UNITAID grants managed by the UNITAID pool; he/she ensures the link between the UNITAID finance officer (UNITAID employee) and the different MSF entities.
The UNITAID pool, while being independent from any section, will have close links with:
- The Dir Ops, Dir Med, Dir Fin and desks at the HQ of each of the lead section, for the management of the grant under its lead
- The Ops (field and HQ) of each of the partner sections for the implementation of the grant activities in the planned missions and countries
- The focal point persons in partner research and advocacy entities such as Epicentre, the Access Campaign, LuxOR, the SAMU or the Manson Unit
- The focal point persons in the MSF supply centres: APU, MSF-Supply, MSF-Log
- The focal person for procurement and negotiations.
- The HQ, aiming at designing and implementing appropriate strategies per project/mission, while ensuring continuity and coherence throughout OCs, sections and missions
- The field staff, to improve the quality of the proposal implementation, budget, reports and amendments, and research.
- The research centres, and the supply centres, to improve quality and coherence throughout research, advocacy and procurement negotiation initiatives.
HIV viral load diagnostics
MSF-B was granted in 2013 a funding of 28 million USD that will run until 31/12/2017 to collaborate with UNITAID to provide evidence regarding appropriate strategies for the planning of HIV diagnostic services within the national health services of the project countries, in order to facilitate the scaling up of high quality diagnostics for HIV/AIDS in developing countries. Activities are implemented by MSF in the frame of a multi-partner agreement, involving MSF-Belgium, MSF-France, MSF-Switzerland and MSF International. Through the project, MSF evaluates the feasibility of newer technologies and identify models of care for optimal use of PoC CD4, laboratory based and PoC viral load and EID testing in differing resource-poor settings.
HCV treatment revolution
MSF-CH signed in 2014 a three-year agreement with UNITAID, with the aim to catalyse markets for HCV in L&MICs by proving feasibility of new HCV treatments and by shaping HCV care guidelines. Project implementers include four MSF sections, as well as Operational Research consultant and academic partners.
