Abstract

Over dependency of donor funding for development programs particularly health interventions for people living with HIV/AIDS have proved not to be sustainable and have major adverse effect to beneficiaries when funding came to an end. Over 95% of HIV/AIDS resources in Tanzania are financed by donors while 10% of total Government of Tanzania spending accounts for HIV/AIDS. Sources of funding for HIV/AIDS in Tanzania flows from, Government Consolidated fund, external Sources and locally collected revenue. Literature also suggests that internal funding specifically from the public private sector can continue to support People Living with HIV/AIDS compared to external funding which are limited and have time bound. This project was conducted for the purpose of documenting the experience of taping internal resources from the public private sector through fund raising activities for the purpose of supporting PLHIV. Different participatory approaches were used during the designing, implementation and monitoring of the project. Through community needs assessment the community was able to identify the most pinching problem and suggest possible solution. The study revealed that in Tanzania there is a big potential resource from the public private sector that can be tapped and support People Living with HIV/AIDS. This project therefore aims at “Extend Support for programs of PLHIV by involving public private sector” and it has been envisaged that PLHIV can be supported through internal funding do not have time limit neither conditions compared to external funding sources.
