Multipartner ARV Procurement Working Group

The Global Fund's Market Shaping Strategy was approved by the Board in May 2011 and directs the Global Fund to "secure the pediatric ARV market" by adopting a coordinated approach to the procurement of pediatric ARVs in the fight against HIV/AIDS.

The Pediatric ARV Procurement Working Group was established in September 2011 and is comprised of diverse partners and stakeholders, organized into two inter-linked groups: the Pediatric ARV Procurement Working Group and the Procurement Consortium. Since 2016, this group has evolved its scope to include ARVs for adolescents and adults.

The ARV Procurement Working Group (APWG) is the umbrella group including all stakeholders and partners of various interests and mandates in supporting the collective efforts towards securing the ARV market. The working group is chaired by the Global Fund and includes:

  • The Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI)
  • Ethiopia Pharmaceuticals Fund and Supply Agency (PFSA)
  • The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria
  • Kenya Medical Supply Agency (KEMSA)
  • Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS)
  • Partnership for Supply Chain Management (PFSCM)
  • Pan-American Health Organization (PAHO)
  • USAID Global Health Supply Chain - Procurement and Supply Management Program
  • The U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)
  • United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF)
  • United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)

The working group observers are:

  • Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative (DNDi)
