WHAT IS THIS ABOUT?
In December 2020, a virtual regional communities and civil society consultation “Towards The Global Fund That We Still Want” was convened by APCASO, as the host of the APCRG Platform, and Global Fund Advocates Network Asia-Pacific (GFAN AP), in partnership with regional key populations and civil society organisation networks and platforms: Activists Coalitions for TB Asia-Pacific (ACT! AP), Regional Malaria CSO Platform Greater Mekong Sub-Region, Asia-Pacific Network of People Living with HIV (APN+), Asia-Pacific Network of Sex Workers (APNSW), Asia-Pacific Transgender Network (APTN),International Community of Women Living with HIV Asia-Pacific (ICW AP), Asian Network of People who Use Drugs (ANPUD),Youth Voices Count (YVC), and Youth LEAD.
This consultation resulted in the drafting of an Asia-Pacific Communities and Civil Society Statement – The Global Fund That We Still Want – that contains a list of positions in order for the Global Fund to continue prioritising community, rights and gender, and community systems strengthening to be even more inclusive and responsive of the needs of key populations, affected and vulnerable communities, and civil society working on the three diseases and beyond to achieve the 2030 Agenda.
In February 2021, 14 consultations with over 330 participants took place across the region, organised by regional key population networks and country-level civil society and key population organisations in 10 countries.
