KEY SUBMISSION DATES ARE BEING UPDATED FOR THE 2023-2025 FUNDING CYCLE. HOW DO YOU ENGAGE WITH YOUR COUNTRY TEAMS AND COUNTRY COORDINATING MECHANISMS?
The Global Fund has begun the preparations for the 2023-2025 Funding Cycle to support country-level efforts on HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria. An important first step is to find out which disease components in your country are eligible for funding, and when will your disease component’s Window Submission be.
The application process takes, on the average 6-9 months, including the Funding Request development, review, grant-making and approval. Engaging early will help you to be more prepared for the process. Take note of the submission window for your country below and find out more about the funding process by visiting our website https://apcaso.org/apcrg/funding-process/.
APCASO is currently hosting the Asia Pacific Community, Rights and Gender communication and coordination Platform (APCRG), (more information here: https://apcaso.org/apcrg/) APCRG promotes and supports community, rights and gender (CRG) approaches to the development, implementation, and monitoring of all Global Fund programmes. This includes (a) enhancing community knowledge of the Global Fund and its processes, through the regular bi-directional sharing of tailored and targeted information to a diverse audience; (b) strengthening the capacity and coordination of communities to engage in national and regional Global Fund grants and related processes; and (c) improving community access to technical assistance through information-sharing, linkage to appropriate providers, support developing requests, and strengthening TA provider capacity and coordination.
The APCRG Platform will be tracking the Funding Requests as countries submit them. Please bookmark this page for any updates.

If you need technical assistance in preparing for your NFM4 submission, you may consider seeking support through the CRG Technical Assistance (TA) programme https://apcaso.org/apcrg/support/.
You can apply to the CRG TA program for projects linked to: situational analysis and needs assessments (including gender assessments); engagement in country dialogue; supporting program design; supporting oversight and monitoring of grant implementation and re-programming; and engagement in sustainability and transition strategies.
In addition, the UNAIDS Technical Assistance Mechanism (TSM), GIZ, and the French 5% Initiative are other important Global Fund-related TA programs in the Asia-Pacific region.
