Assessing Civil society Priorities in Global Fund Country Concept Notes |

Publisher: Eastern Africa National Networks of AIDS Service Organizations (EANNASO)

The attached report measures the impact of civil society consultations on the final concept notes that countries submitted to the Global Fund. Concept notes from Kenya, Malawi, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Zanzibar and Zimbabwe were examined for their responsiveness to civil society’s priorities expressed during country dialogue.

The civil society priorities charters, published by AIDS Accountability International, were used as a measure of what civil society wanted to see included in the concept notes. The results indicate that that certain kinds of priorities were more likely to be included in the concept notes than others. The report proceeds to offers several explanations as to why civil society’s and key population priority efforts during country dialogue appear to have been more successful in some countries than in others.
