Today the W4GF Strategy Working Group submitted our collective ideas to ensure that gender equality remains a key strategic objective and central to the work of the Global Fund. 

This Advocacy Brief presents priorities that need to be included in the forthcoming Global Fund Strategy 2023-2028. It highlights key recommendations from the W4GF Strategy Working Group that brings together 64 people from 31 countries who are highly engaged and stand ready to work closely with the Global Fund on the 2023–2028 Strategy development, hoping to have as close a working relationship with the Global Fund team as we did on the last Strategy development process (2017-2022). 

We are committed to supporting the Global Fund, to ensure that the right processes and programmes are accelerated to make a real difference to women in all our diversity throughout our lives, and to achieve the impact and results that are central to the Global Fund’s mission. Women4GlobalFund calls on the Global Fund Board to accelerate action to make a difference for women and girls, and to ensure the following priorities are central to the new Strategy:

  • Sharpen the commitment to gender equality 
  • Support sexual and reproductive health and rights 
  • Require women-centred and community-led data collection, monitoring and evaluation 
  • Invest in our communities for programmes and advocacy
  • Meaningfully engage us at all levels of decision making.
