As part of its work on behalf of GFAN, ICSS convened a strategy meeting from 28-30 January 2013 in Amsterdam. The following overall objectives were articulated in advance:
To provide an opportunity for civil society advocates to be briefed by the Global Fund Secretariat on its strategy for resource mobilisation and communication for the fourth replenishment, which is taking place in 2013
To consult with a wider group of key advocates on a civil society strategy and key messages for the 2013 replenishment
To plan jointly for global and national action

The countries whose recent pledges to the Global Fund have been the largest in relation to their gross national income are Sweden, Norway, France, the United Kingdom and Canada, in that order.
To help with the analysis that led to this conclusion, Aidspan created a formula for a “Global Fund donor score.” The formula is based on a country’s average annual pledge to the Global Fund for 2011–2013 as a percentage of its 2011 gross national income. Aidspan then applied this formula to each of the 30 countries that have the largest economies and that are defined by the World Bank as being “high-income.” (The definition “high-income” is based on standard of living, not size of economy).
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.
This update begins with an explanation of current trends in development assistance for health (DAH) and the role that these external resources play in the total expenditure on health in low- and middle-income countries. It examines progress in 52 African countries and a sample of 20 non-African middle-income countries.
In recent years, the Board and Secretariat have recognized the need to strengthen efforts to ensure that most-affected populations, including sex workers, men who have sex with men, transgender people and other sexual minorities be given appropriate priority in Global Fund policies, processes and funding.
