New guides and support materials for the Grant Cycle 7 (GC7)

Global Fund

Annex of Funding Priorities of Civil Society and Communities Most Affected by HIV, Tuberculosis and Malaria. Frequently Asked Questions

The Annex of Funding Priorities of Civil Society and Communities (“Annex”) captures the highest priority interventions collectively identified by civil society and communities most affected by HIV, tuberculosis (TB) and malaria as part of the funding request development process led by the Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM).


Undertaking a Rapid Assessment of Information on Human Rights-related Barriers to HIV and TB Services: Guidance and Tools 

The guide and the accompanying tools have been prepared to support countries to gather and analyze required or recommended information on the nature of human rights related barriers to HIV and TB services, and opportunities to enhance programming to
address or remove the barriers.


Technical Brief Removing Human Rights-related Barriers to TB Services

Human rights-related barriers (TB-related stigma and discrimination, harmful laws, policies and practices, gender inequality and gender-based violence) continue to keep people in need from gaining access to vital TB health services. These barriers can be overcome by implementing and scaling up recognized, well-defined, evidence-based programs that should be part of every national TB programme.


Technical Brief Gender Equality 

This brief sets out key concepts, resources and opportunities within the Global Fund grant cycle to integrate approaches that respond to gender differences and seek to transform the underlying gender inequalities that worsen health outcomes. It is not exhaustive, so should
be used to complement other materials designed to support countries in developing strong funding requests.


Stop TB

Priority TB CRG interventions for inclusion in Global Fund Grant Cycle 7 

The Global Fund (TGF) funding requests offer significant opportunity for TB partners to scale up investment in TB CRG. This investment is critical to ensure that countries can identify, mitigate and overcome CRG barriers in the TB program and to find and treat the missing people with TB. The next Global Fund Grant cycle covers the years 2023-2025, it is referred to as Grant Cycle 7 (GC7), it will be important for TB stakeholders to be prepared and active in the funding request development, grant making and subsequent implementation.


Global Fund Advocates Network

Advocacy guides to 1/4/6×24 – shorter regimens for TB

Countries will soon begin the process of developing their funding requests, and already Country Coordination Mechanisms are holding country dialogues to identify key priorities. The funding request development, and the country dialogues that precedes it, is a crucial time to ensure that the Global Fund invests in the latest advances in diagnostic and treatment in the next funding cycle. For TB advocates representing civil society and affected communities, an essential development is the series of new shorter regimens for TB that have been shown to be faster, safer and more effective. The Treatment Action Group (TAG), Partners In Health (PIH) and a coalition of civil society organizations have launched the 1/4/6×24 campaign to raise awareness around the new regimens. The next step to ensure that all who need it get access is to put these new regimens in the funding requests.
