Briefing Note: Global Fund Strategy Development


The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (the Global Fund) has launched an open consultation on the development of the next Global Fund Strategy. A number of emerging issues in the wider global health environment mean this is a particularly important consultation for sex workers; this is an opportunity to influence the future strategy and ensure that sex workers’ needs are included, and health inequalities addressed.

NSWP would like to see a renewed commitment in the Global Fund strategy to:

  • strengthen community-led responses and rights-based programming
  • address the structural barriers that prevent access to health and a fulfilment of human rights
  • address health inequities around the world and across key populations, including sex workers, in a person-centred approach
  • meaningful involvement of sex workers and other key populations in the development, implementation, management and evaluation of policies and programming.

NSWP is encouraging member organisations to take part in the open consultation. This Briefing Note aims to provide some additional context and information, as well as some guidance for members on how they can play a role in the development of the future strategy.
