Also available in: Español

Building on the regional civil society roundtables to date, a global civil society roundtable is planned to consolidate learning on meaningful community engagement in Global Fund-related processes amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

5 November 2020
2:00 pm – 4:00pm (GMT+2:00)


  1. Share information from civil society and community-led surveys and case studies on the specific COVID-related barriers that impede meaningful engagement in Global Fund-related processes, and how these can be overcome.
  2. Highlight good examples of effective community engagement in Global Fund country dialogue during COVID-19 for HIV, TB, malaria and C19RM funding requests submitted in Windows 1-3, and make recommendations for Windows 4-6 applicants.
  3. Promote cross-regional learning and exchange, so that civil society and community organizations may replicate or adapt effective community engagement strategies.


Up to 300 participants from civil society and community groups from the six regions, members of Country Coordinating Mechanisms (CCMs), Global Fund Secretariat staff, technical partners, and other stakeholders interested in meaningful civil society and community engagement.


English, with translation of key points into Arabic, French, Spanish and Russian in the chat box.
