Women4GlobalFund (W4GF) – with the support of the ViiV Healthcare, and Frontline AIDS – organised a virtual workshop (19 – 28 April 2021) for 30 women from Cameroon, India and Tanzania Enabling Women to Track Global Fund Investments Towards Gender Equality Across HIV, Tuberculosis & Malaria. A full meeting report will be available at the end of May to highlight the depth and breadth of our discussions.
This outcomes statement is a summation of what participants would like to see as they move forward with community led monitoring (CLM). Whilst the three countries are diverse and face a myriad of different challenges, the overall priorities for CLM unite the group to promote and protect human rights and gender equality in Global Fund–supported programmes.
We note that many of the recommendations in the statement are not new, so we hope that the CCMs, technical partners, the Global Fund, and donor partners find opportunities to strengthen systems necessary to ensure that women in communities can complement the work of implementing partners. This will help ensure that HIV, Tuberculosis and Malaria programmes and services are rights-based and at minimum gender-sensitive.
