Summary of top-level priorities areas for civil society & communities

Summary of top-level priorities areas for civil society & communities (Regularly Updated)

Source: Input submitted to the Global Fund or made available to the Global Fund Advocates Network (GFAN) by civil society and community constituencies during the Global Fund strategy development process. The inputs include advocacy and position papers and findings from surveys and consultations. (A list of sources is provided at the end of the document.)

Individual inputs have widely varying language, detail and specific ‘asks’. This document attempts to group them into some top-level priority areas for attention by the Global Fund in the new strategy. It is updated regularly as more input is made available during the process, which will continue through and after the Partnership Forums in the first quarter of 2021. [Most recent update: 17 March 2021]

Additional inputs, comments and other relevant information to inform this ‘living document’ can be submitted through the GFAN website’s strategy development section, which is where the most up-to-date version can be found.

Focus areas are grouped by the following nine categories:

  1. Gender, human rights and equity
  2. Key populations
  3. Communities
  4. Health systems and integration
  5. Social determinants and holistic approaches
  6. Global Fund structures and processes
  7. Accountability
  8. Funding, sustainability and transition
  9. Other / miscellaneous

Within each category, the individual entries are shaded in colours meant to indicate how often they are mentioned and prioritized across the inputs. Blue = extensive support within the priority area; orange = moderate support; yellow = small number of references. The cross-cutting nature of many of the inputs is reflected in some entries being listed in more than one category.

Colour shadings might change over time for various entries as more input arrives throughout the course of the strategy development process. Also, more entries can be added as needed to reflect incoming inputs.
