The Robert Carr Fund is pleased to be collaborating with the Regional Platforms for Communication and Coordination under the Community, Rights and Gender (CRG) strategic initiative of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria with a series of regional information webinars to provide information related to the recently launched Request For Proposals (RFP) 2019 – 2021 of the Robert Carr Fund.

Through this RFP, the Robert Carr Fund invites proposals from global and regional civil society networks addressing critical factors protecting the rights of inadequately served populations (ISPs);[1] scaling up access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support; and assuring that resources are mobilized and utilized appropriately to respond to the global HIV epidemic.  The goal of the Fund is to contribute to improved health, inclusion and social wellbeing for inadequately served populations. To reach this goal, the Robert Carr Fund provides core funding to strengthen the institutional and advocacy capacity of regional and global ISP and civil society networks and/or their consortia.

Global and regional networks and consortia of networks which meet the definitions and criteria set by this RFP are  invited to apply for a grant to support core funding and/or activity needs of the networks and/or consortia for up to three years (2019-2021). The deadline for submission of proposals is August 13, 2018 at 12:00 (noon) CET.

The webinar for  Eastern Europe and Central Asia will be held on 27th June from 14.00 – 16.00 (CEST)  and will be conducted in Russian. The webinar will offer an opportunity to find out more about the request for proposals and process for submission.

[1] ISPs are groups or persons that face a higher HIV risk, mortality and/or morbidity when compared to the general population, and have, at the same time, less access to information and services. They include people living with HIV, gay men and other men who have sex with men, people who use drugs, prisoners, sex workers and transgender persons, but depending on the dynamic of the epidemic and the legal status of these populations may also include women and girls, youth, migrants, and people living in rural areas.
