Robert Carr Fund is looking for independent reviewers
The 2018 Request for Proposals (RFP) clearly describes the critical role of reviewers in the application review and evaluation process, and highlights the assessment criteria and timeline – please take a quick look at Section 8 of the RFP “Process for Application Review.”
If you are interested to do the reviews in late August – early September, 2018 RCF invites experts from various geographies and populations to contribute valuable and diverse expertise related to HIV to helping Program Advisory Panel (PAP) to evaluate applications for RCF funding for 2019-2021.
2018 Request for Proposals
On June 18 this year, the Robert Carr Fund has launched a Request for Proposals (RFP). Through this RFP, the Robert Carr Fund invited proposals from global and regional civil society networks addressing critical factors protecting the rights of inadequately served populations (ISPs); 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.

* 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.

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.
