This new technical brief titled “Roadmap for Key Populations Advocates Navigating the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB & Malaria” seeks to provide an overall snapshot of how the Global Fund mechanism works, to help key populations navigate the pathway to securing funding for their work. It offers toolkits, policy briefs, trainings and other materials that explain different steps of that process in more detail. It also includes case study examples of successful key population programs supported by the Global Fund, in hopes that they inspire creativity, innovation and persistence in driving this work forward.
This brief is intended for key populations advocates, organizers, networks and community members working to under-stand and make the most of resources and opportunities at the Global Fund. I can also be used by supportive allies, partner organizations, CCM members and all others who agree that KP communities can and should be the leaders of the HIV response for their communities.
The technical brief is part of an eight-part series from MPact’s Key Population Empowerment Leadership (KELP) program funded by FHI360 and ViiV Healthcare (U.K.). MPact will issue a certificate of completion for our Key Population Empowerment Leadership (KELP) Program for those who attend a minimum of five of our virtual webinars, and successfully answer a survey after the series.
