Global Fund Strategy 2023–2028: The Smart Sex Worker’s Guide


The 2023-2028 Global Fund Strategy will guide Global Fund approaches, decision-making, and investment for the next 6 years in a 70-page document. It is important because it describes what the Global Fund will do and how it will do it. The Strategy will influence how investment will be disbursed at the country level, how and who will implement programmes, and how and who will be involved in making the decisions. The Strategy’s increased emphasis on community leadership, acknowledgement, and commitment to maximise use of community knowledge and experience, as well as its greater emphasis on equity, gender equality, and human rights, will make it an extremely useful tool to enhance the engagement of sex workers in all Global Fund processes.

This Smart Guide tries to simplify two components of the Global Fund Strategy:

  1. The Strategy Framework, which provides a broad overview, and
  2. The Strategy Narrative, which is complex and goes into detail about how the Global Fund will implement the strategy.
