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.
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.

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.
