The Global Fund 6th Partnership Forums: Call for Civil Society participant nominations


The Global Fund is preparing to host its 6th Partnership Forums, to be held virtually in 2021. In this regard, they are currently seeking partners’ support to identify and nominate potential participants.

The Bylaws of the Global Fund state that the Partnership Forum should serve as a visible platform for debate, advocacy, continued fundraising, and inclusion of new partners for the development of the next Global Fund’s strategic plan. To this end, the 6th Partnership Forums will be central to the development of the post-2022 Global Fund Strategy.

In early 2021, three virtual Partnership Forums will convene individuals representing the broad Global Fund partnership to review input, evidence and guidance received on Strategy Development, and to debate and distil potential emerging areas of future Strategy focus. The 6th Partnership Forums are scheduled as follows:

  • Partnership Forum I: Eastern Europe and Central Asia & Latin America and the Caribbean 9-11 February, 2021
  • Partnership Forum II: Africa, 17-19 February, 2021
  • Partnership Forum III: East Asia Pacific, South West Asia, 3-5 March, 2021

To ensure informed and in-depth discussions, the Partnership Forum consultations will convene approximately 350 participants in total, for all three meetings, representing the full range of Global Fund stakeholders, including, but not limited to: governments, communities living with and affected by HIV, TB, and malaria; civil society and key populations; technical agencies and partners; and the private sector.

Due to constraints in the number of people who may attend the Partnership Forums this call for nominations aims to identify a pool of potential participants, from which a selected group will be invited to ensure balanced representation of the Global Fund partnership, in line with the participant methodology and targets. As such, attendance at the 6th Partnership Forums will be by invitation only.

Selection of participants attending the 6th Partnership Forums is the responsibility of the Global Fund. In line with the general participation guidelines for the 6th Partnership Forums, priority will be given to those who do not have the opportunity to participate and engage with the Global Fund through the ‘regular channels’ (e.g., governance officials, implementers or assurance of providers of Global Fund programs), as well as participants coming from the global south.

Participant nominations should be submitted using the following link below to access the 6th Partnership Forum nomination form.
