This report summarizes discussions at a meeting of the Global Fund Advocates Network (GFAN)
held 8-10 February 2012 in Amsterdam. The meeting is an essential step in a recently launched
process to develop a joint civil society advocacy strategy, over both the short- and longer-term, in
support of resource mobilization for the Global Fund. Participants included representatives from
the Global Fund Secretariat, and international, regional and national NGOs, affected communities
and Friends of the Fund organizations that focus on one or more of the three Global Fund priority
diseases. Also in attendance were staff from the Stop TB Partnership and UNAIDS.
