The Global Fund has issued two requests for proposal (RFPs) that aim to improve the engagement of civil society and communities in Global Fund programs and processes.
Support engagement of key populations
The Global Fund is inviting global networks or consortia of networks of HIV key populations (KPs) to submit proposals for programs that support regional and country-based KP constituents to engage in, and contribute to, the development, implementation and oversight of Global Fund–supported programs. The KPs covered in this call include gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men; sex workers; trans people; drug users; young key populations; and people living with HIV, including women and youth.
The proposed programs will also enhance the capacity of KPs to advocate for increased investment in human rights-based and community-responsive programs, as well as effective community-led rights and gender-related programs within Global Fund grants.
The deadline for the submission of proposals is 19 June 2017. The RFP is available here (see TGF-17-080).
Improve community-based monitoring and feedback
The Global Fund is looking for service providers that have the capacity and expertise to deliver technical assistance (TA) to improve community-based monitoring and feedback. The activities to be implemented in this initiative include providing TA to current implementers of Global Fund grants to evaluate, learn from and improve their community-based monitoring and feedback activities; providing TA to design and include community-based monitoring and feedback in the 2017-2019 funding cycle grants; compiling and sharing experiences on community-based monitoring and feedback through case studies, reports, and regional and global learning events, as well as organising and facilitating such regional or global learning events; and developing TA, operations research and documentation tools for this initiative.
The deadline for the submission of proposals is 19 June 2017. The RFP is available here (see TGF-17-082).
