Publisher: EANNASO

The short 4-page document highlights the results of a survey on the knowledge and perspectives of civil society and communities on Global Fund processes in the region.

Key findings:

  • Most respondents said that concept note development was the most open part of the New Funding Model for civil society organizations and community groups, while grant-making was the most closed part.
  • Respondents from civil society organizations were more likely to have participated in both country dialogues and regional dialogues than respondents from key populations.
  • The most commonly-cited benefit of Global Fund technical assistance (TA) was that it enables meaningful participation in Global Fund processes. The majority or respondents said there needs to be more TA available after concept note submission to support watch-dogging of implementation.
