The success and challenges of GF - C19RM in meeting the needs of Key Populations is a community-led report by MPact in partnership with NSWP, INPUD and GATE. The report was supported by Global Fund: Community Rights and Gender – Strategic Initiative.
Effective, meaningful engagement of key populations and inclusion of community priorities and efforts within a country’s Global Fund COVID-19 Response Mechanism (C19RM) is critical to mitigating the impact of COVID-19 on HIV and TB responses.
This Brief aims to illustrate the extent to which key populations were supported to participate in and influence Global Fund (GF) C19RMs within their countries, and lessons learned during the process. In particular, the Brief considers the technical assistance (TA) provided to key populations in 2021, highlighting strategic learnings about what worked, what didn’t work and what could be done better in future to improve key key populations’ voices, priorities and engagement in GF C19RM funding proposals, and their strengthened engagement in subsequent implementation at country level.
