Publisher: GFAN Since its inception in 2002, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (the Global Fund) has played a critical role in mobilizing and securing resources to invest in programs that serve key and vulnerable populations. Key and vulnerable populations are present in all continents, despite continuing official denial of their sheer existence in some regions and countries. Science has taught us that addressing their needs is not only a human rights obligation but also a requirement from an epidemiological and public health point of view. Ending the epidemics will not be possible if we do not increase service coverage among these groups. This requires engagement, empowerment, and mobilization of communities, which is where networks and organizations of key and vulnerable populations are the most effective leaders, and vital Global Fund partners.

Publisher:  The Global Forum on MSM & HIV For over a decade, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria (Global Fund) has been one of the world’s largest donors in the HIV epidemic. Due in part to the community activism of key affected populations (KAPs), including transgender women, the Global Fund has established processes for engaging local civil society and KAPs groups under its New Funding Model (NFM). Through engagement with processes such as country dialogue, including the work of Country Coordinating Mechanisms (CCMs), transgender activists and organizations have helped to increase funding and programmatic focus on transgender needs related to HIV prevention and treatment. However, extensive barriers remain to sufficiently addressing transgender needs in the HIV epidemic, and little work has been done to document good practices for engaging key donors such as the Global Fund. This report, commissioned by...
