The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has granted USD$5 million over three years to the New Venture Fund to support the Global Fund Advocates Network and country specific advocacy for Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria resource mobilization.
Over the term of the grant, International Civil Society Support (ICSS), as the secretariat for the Global Fund Advocates Network (GFAN), will work with the New Venture Fund (NVF) as its technical partner to support country-level organizations to develop proposals and refer them for funding to the New Venture Fund for Global Fund Advocacy fund (NVF for GFA).
Identification of applicants to be invited by the NVF for GFA will be based on a joint analysis of political and other opportunities in donor and implementing countries, investment needs and strategic and technical advice of ICSS, the Global Fund Secretariat and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

This report details the strong partnership between the Global Fund and the faith community and highlights opportunities for further engagement.
The Global Fund, the world’s largest public health financier, was designed to pursue its mission against HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria through a partnership model, relying on local leaders, bilateral organizations, the private sector, technical partners, advocates of public health and civil society organizations – including faith-based organizations – to implement the programs it funds. Close collaboration with the faith community is particularly important to the success of Global Fund programs; churches, mosques, synagogues and other faith-based organizations (FBOs) play a role at all stages of its operations.
In addition to identifying opportunities for collaboration between FBOs and the ...
A key feature of the NFM is the Country Band. All 123 eligible countries are grouped into one of four Bands based on disease burden and income level. Although Band 4 is the largest Band, comprising 55 countries, its overall share of funding is only 7%. This shift in distribution methodology appears to be predicated on the assumption that with Band 4 countries, previous investments have been in low impact interventions – the result: countries are penalized for having low or relatively low disease prevalence.This briefing paper is intended to help advocates better understand the country allocation methodology in general and the specificities of Band 4 in particular. It also outlines the implications of Band 4 classification for civil society and key populations, and provides advocacy entry points and recommendations for how the model can be improved.

The key feature of the Global Fund’s New Funding Model (NFM) is to ensure the inclusiveness of civil society and key populations (KP), including men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender people.
Country Dialogue is the term used by the Global Fund to describe the inclusive, ongoing consultative processes at the country level that is meant to inform all stages of the NFM process. It is also one of the main criteria in assessing whether funding applications are robust.
APCOM has released a set of guidance documents, entitled ‘MSM and Transgender Engagement in Global Fund New Funding Model Country Dialogue’. There are 17 different versions of the guidance document for each of the 17 countries in Asia and the Pacific region (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, Fiji, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Maldives, Mongolia, Nepal, Pakistan, the Philippines, PNG, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Vietnam). These guidance documents aim to help c...
