This report reflects on the founding values of the Global Fund, where it has made progress and where it has fallen short. It outlines three critical areas that require attention and advocacy:
realizing the Global Fund’s human rights objectives
preserving support in middle income countries
supporting access to medicines for all at the lowest possible price
A period of changing global health governance and a dramatically shifting geography of poverty are part of the context for this briefing paper’s consideration of the impact of changes at the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria, including the Fund’s so-called New Funding Model.
This report is a resource for advocates working to assess the impact of the New Funding Model and to help shape the next five-year strategy.
The Community, Rights and Gender (CRG) Department at the Global Fund technical assistance program is now ready to receive requests for support from communities and civil society across the Global Fund Portfolio. The program is one of a number of special initiatives aimed at strengthening community and civil society engagement in country dialogue and concept note development processes, and to ensure Global Fund supported programs are more effectively responding to their priorities.
Attached is a brief overview of the program. It aims to provide clarity on the purpose, scope and parameters of the program as well as the process for requesting CRG technical assistance. It has been kept purposefully short and simple.

The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on HIV and AIDS announced in February 2014 that it was going to conduct an inquiry into access to HIV treatment in low and middle income countries (LMICs). The purpose of the inquiry was to investigate barriers to the access of HIV treatment in LMICs and to provide an update of The Treatment Timebomb report, which was produced by the APPG on HIV and AIDS in 2009.
This note provides guidance and practical examples on human rights programming, which if included in concept notes, will contribute significantly to improving health outcomes and access to health services.
