Global Fund grant renewal and re-programming: What are the experiences of civil society organizations and programs that focus on key populations?

Published: January 11, 2013

During 2012, ICASO conducted a study of nine Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Global Fund) grants, all of which have recently undergone Phase 2 grant renewal or Rolling Continuation Channel grant re-programming.  All of the grants selected for the study that were being implemented in the nine countries (Armenia, Belarus, Belize, Ethiopia, Haiti, Indonesia, Madagascar, Nicaragua, and Zimbabwe) were HIV grants.
