The Community, Rights and Gender (CRG) Technical Assistance Program provides support to civil society and community organizations to meaningfully engage in the Global Fund model, including during:

  • Country dialogue
  • Funding request development
  • Grant-making
  • Grant implementation

Under this program, national civil society and community organizations can apply for technical assistance in a range of areas, such as:

  • Situational analysis and planning
  • Participation in country dialogue
  • Program design
  • Oversight and monitoring of grant implementation
  • Engagement in sustainability and transition strategy development

Some examples of technical assistance requests include:

  • Support to design, plan and implement a consultation process to identify key population priorities for HIV funding request development
  • Designing and budgeting for community systems strengthening programs as part of the grant-making process
  • Facilitating a funding request review among youth organizations to identify gaps and propose appropriate interventions for inclusion
  • Proactive, peer-led community engagement support to civil society and community in sustainability and transition planning

Technical assistance is provided by nongovernmental organizations – including key population networks, universities and civil society organizations – that were selected through an open tender process for their demonstrated skills and capacities on community, rights and gender competencies.

The CRG Technical Assistance Program is one part of a US$15 million Global Fund Board-approved strategic initiative that runs through December 2019. The strategic initiative aims to ensure that all people who are affected by the three diseases can play a meaningful role in Global Fund processes and ensure that grants reflect their needs.
