In April 2020, the Global Fund established C19RM to support countries to respond to COVID-19 and mitigate its impact on programs to fight HIV, TB, malaria and systems for health. The pandemic continues to have a devastating impact on global health systems, jeopardizing the fight against HIV, TB and malaria and progress towards the 2030 goals for the three diseases. On 7 April 2021, the Global Fund launched the second phase of C19RM.
All countries, including regional/multi-country recipients, that are currently receiving funding from the Global Fund are eligible to receive C19RM funding.
The Global Network of Sex Work Projects (NSWP), GATE, The International Network of People who Use Drugs (INPUD), and MPact Global Action for Gay Men’s Health have created a C19RM Guidance Hub where you can find guidance on C19RM from the Global Fund and from key population networks and communities.
Here you can find country reports that have already been submitted to The Global Fund as part of the C19RM process. We have indicated the key populations included in the consultation/development of each proposal before each link.
Based on community-led consultations to determine sex worker and other key population priorities for C19RM funding requests, the country reports give evidence to the different formats used to present those priorities to CCM writing teams. They also highlight the similarities of need and a comparison of gaps in the C19 response for key populations in various countries and regions.
The country reports are a useful learning opportunity to compare how other countries' key populations have approached the Global Fund C19RM call for funding requests.
