Making the Global Fund More Effective & Efficient

Our Global Fund programming aims to :

  • Increase and improve the role and action of community sector organizations in Global Fund governance and implementation, particularly in country coordinating mechanisms (CCMs), country dialogue, and concept note development.
  • Increase the availability of high-quality evidence to support advocacy and accountability for community sector actors to undertake watchdog functions such as monitoring and advocacy.
  • Increase advocacy at the global level for greater accountability of all stakeholders and for more effective AIDS responses supported by the Global Fund.

ICASO has developed a number of tools to help civil society and key populations understand and engage with the Global Fund. Scroll down to access our resources.
