Digital Dossier: Leading women’s engagement with the Global Fund

Translating women’s needs into gender-transformative quality interventions

One of W4GF’s goals is to enhance accessibility and understanding of the current Global Fund Strategy (2023-2025), so women and girls have comprehensive access to HIV, TB and Malaria services through Global Fund Programmes. Creating the Digital Dossier is an outcome of our Mentorship programme, which focuses on gender-oriented advocacy. This initiative aims to ensure a transparent and inclusive funding application development process through the Country Coordinating Mechanism.

Our digital dossier aims to share precise, summarised, culturally sensitive, and language-appropriate information related to the Global Fund’s 2023-2025 Allocation Cycle, including programmatic guidance, reviews of programs, frameworks, and other supporting materials. The documents are classified into the following topics:

The Mentorship Program presentations comprehensively overview the program’s objectives, structure, and benefits. The presentations and documents emphasize the program’s impact on Global Fund engagement process and the fostering of meaningful participation within the community. Through engaging visuals and narratives, these presentations inspire participants and encourage active involvement in the mentorship journey.

These resources delineate the application process, eligibility criteria, and project scope, aiding potential grantees. The community toolbox, a compendium of templates and best practices, promotes collaboration, enabling women’s organisations to streamline proposals.
