This resource guide is designed to assist civil society organizations in understanding how to access funding from the Global Fund (GF) and eﬀectively engage in country dialogue through all the key stages. In 2014, the Global Fund’s New Funding Model (NFM) was launched. Inclusion of civil society and key aﬀected populations (KAP) including men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender people) is a key feature of the NFM. Key populations are defined by the Global Fund as women and girls, men who have sex with men, transgender people, people who inject drugs, sex workers, prisoners, refugees and migrants, people living with HIV, adolescents and young people, orphans and vulnerable children, and populations of humanitarian concern. The current funding cycle, 2017-2019, builds on the principles of the NFM with the addition of a few enhancements designed to simplify the grant application process. Further, the 2017-22 Global Fund Strategic Objective 3e) makes specific reference to the need to support meaningful engagement of key and vulnerable populations and networks in Global Fund related processes.
