This report provides an overview of discussions during three calls organized by the Global Fund Advocates Network (GFAN) held shortly before and after the Global Fund’s 7th Replenishment preparatory meeting on 23–24 February.
The first two calls, on 15 and 22 February, were co-organized by the GFAN Secretariat, GFAN Asia Pacific, GFAN Africa and GFAN Afrique Francophone. They focused on discussing key points and issues to include in a civil society statement on the Global Fund’s investment case and highlighting some priority actions and events for civil society engagement in support of the replenishment. The investment case is the document in which the Global Fund reveals how much money it hopes to raise and presents its argument for why all or more of those funds should be made available.
The third call, on 25 February, provided a forum for GFAN members to listen to Global Fund Secretariat staff introduce and summarize the investment case, which was formally released on 23 February, and to ask questions and make remarks in response. A recording of this call can be found here.
