The Global Fund has launched a process to develop its new Strategy, which will cover the five years from 2023–2028. GFAN and its partners believe that the voices, priorities and needs of civil society, communities and key populations around the world must be heard during the process and reflected in final Strategy for it to be as successful as possible in leaving no one behind in HIV, TB and malaria responses everywhere.
The latest consolidated civil society priorities for the Global Funds’ new strategy: https://www.globalfundadvocatesnetwork.org/summary-of-top-level-priorities-areas-for-civil-society-communities/
The process includes several opportunities and entry points for civil society and communities to provide input in various ways.
