In 2007, the Global Fund Board recognized the importance of addressing gender issues in the fight against the three diseases, placing a particular focus on the vulnerabilities of women and girls and “sexual minorities”.

This strategy states that these groups face challenges in being able to access or benefit from Global Fund grants. They have limited access to the decision-making bodies of the Global Fund and they also face social and structural barriers to the realization of their health and rights.

The document outlines concrete actions that the Global Fund can take to address the vulnerabilities and the needs of men who have sex with men, transgender peoples and sex workers in the fight against the three diseases.
