Countries will soon begin the process of developing their funding requests, and already Country Coordination Mechanisms are holding country dialogues to identify key priorities.
The funding request development, and the country dialogues that precedes it, is a crucial time to ensure that the Global Fund invests in the latest advances in diagnostic and treatment in the next funding cycle. For TB advocates representing civil society and affected communities, an essential development is the series of new shorter regimens for TB that have been shown to be faster, safer and more effective. The Treatment Action Group (TAG), Partners In Health (PIH) and a coalition of civil society organizations have launched the 1/4/6×24 campaign to raise awareness around the new regimens. The next step to ensure that all who need it get access is to put these new regimens in the funding requests.
We are releasing a series of advocacy briefing notes presenting the new regimens, and guiding you through how to advocate for their inclusion in Global Fund funding requests.
