Community Update for KP and CS Advocates: The 2017-2019 GF Funding Cycle: the diferentiated funding application process and how to engage.
The alert brings our attention several opportunities to be involved with your country Global Fund proposal, to be sure it answers to Key population and community needs and priorities.
- focuses on the changes that have been announced by the Global Fund pertaining to how countries will apply for funding during the upcoming funding period (2017-2019);
- offers background information on important processes and decisions that will take place in early 2017;
- provides advice on how groups can begin to get prepared and how they can request technical assistance, if needed; and
- will be followed by updates, links to tools, and other resources as they become available.
What you should know
About 70% of current Global Fund grants will come to an end in 2017 and three application windows will open in 2017:
- Window 1: 20 March
- Window 2: 23 May
- Window 3: 28 August
CCMs will receive letters in mid-December advising them how much money they have been allocated for the 2017-2019 period and which application modalities they will be required to follow. The letter will also specify the recommended amount allocated to each disease area.
Community representatives on CCMs will need to share information with the broader community, including Key Populations, regarding the amount allocated to their countries and the application modality to which they have been assigned.
What actions you should take now to ensure Key populations are ready for the new funding opportunity
- Engage with your CCM representative
- Make sure your CCM rep(s) shares the content of the allocation letter from the Global Fund as soon as it arrives – probably mid-December
- Meet to develop your recommendations to the CCM on:
- submission date for funding proposal
- allocation split between the diseases
- level of funding that should be allocated to RSSH and CSS activities
- level of support you need to hold consultations with communities in advance of proposal development process
- Convene meetings to begin developing priorities
- Submit requests for technical support, if needed

Services for migrants and refugees from Ukraine – HIV/TB care with a focus on key populations
Due to the increasing flows of refugees from Ukraine because of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the EECA Regional Platform created a spreadsheet to fill contacts details of face-to-face and online services for refugees and migrants (with a focus on HIV/TB care and key population groups).
If you provide such services or know verified providers, please fill out the spreadsheet at your earliest convenience, and, please, update it as more verified information is available. These can be services for national citizens if they are also accessible to international migrants and refugees.
