As you may be aware, GFAN launched the Get Back on Track campaign for the Global Fund’s 6th Replenishment last month. We are reaching out to you to ask for your support.
We hope to have a significant push on May 13 (next Monday), the day before the Global Fund Board meeting, which happens to be 150 days before Replenishment. We are reaching out to you as a GFAN member or ally to gather signatures from your key champions ahead of May 13 – these can be:
- Parliamentarians and elected officials you have worked with or who champion the Fund and/or the three diseases or health in general,
- Other decision-makers who support the work of the fund,
- People working in the field of HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria
- Grassroots members,
- Members of your own networks and coalitions, and
- Family, friends and neighbours including, of course – yourself!
Its important to show strong global support: it is as important to continue advocating to our governments to pledge to the Global Fund and show support by making domestic resource commitments. As such, the second part of our campaign is a series of template materials and tools that you can use to ask for support for the Global Fund and to advocate for a pledge and/or increased resources.
You may use these in part or in whole: these are meant to be a starting point for you to customize as you see fit. Currently you can find a number of significant resources to write to your Head of State about increasing commitments to the Fund and/or investments in the 3 diseases, to circulate the pledge call to action and to reach out to media.
This campaign is on-going through early October ahead of the Replenishment – but we ask you to help us this week, ahead of the May Board Meeting of the Global Fund to gather as many sign-on’s to the pledge call to action as possible so that we can make a strong statement as the Board Members and their delegations get together in Geneva for the last Board Meeting before the 6th Replenishment.
Please share and circulate to your networks widely.
