6th Partnership Forums

The Global Fund is developing a bold, ambitious and agile post-2022 strategy to accelerate progress against HIV, tuberculosis and malaria and improve global health. We are convening representatives from across the Global Fund partnership at the 6th Partnership Forums to review input, evidence and guidance received on strategy development to date to help identify areas of future focus for the next Global Fund Strategy.

Engaging our partners

The 6th Partnership Forums are designed to collect ideas, perspectives and guidance from across the full Global Fund partnership to feed into our post-2022 strategy.

The Partnership Forums will provide a platform to discuss how the Global Fund can contribute to the ambitious 2030 goals for HIV, TB, malaria and health as broadly set out in UN Sustainable Development Goal Three. The Partnership Forums will also consider the challenges posed by COVID-19 as we #UniteToFight the three diseases and coronavirus.

Entirely virtual

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Partnership Forums will convene virtually with three regional meetings, preceded by a joint global opening session and followed by a joint global closing session.

Partnership Forums are designed to ensure an inclusive, engaging exchange of ideas and to celebrate the diversity of voices represented in the Global Fund partnership. The Global Fund will support participant participation by helping to secure internet access as well as provide IT support, translated materials in relevant languages and interpretation services where possible.

For any questions, please contact partnershipforum@theglobalfund.org.

Timeline for the Forums

Who will attend?

Participants will represent the broad and diverse range of stakeholders that make up the Global Fund partnership. Participants are invited through a formal nomination process based on criteria determined in conjunction with the Global Fund’s Strategy Committee. The criteria aim to:

  • ensure a balance between familiar voices and those stakeholders who have fewer opportunities to engage in Global Fund strategic discussions
  • bring a balance of perspectives, experiences, geographical backgrounds and areas of expertise to contribute to the discussion

How we develop our strategy

The Partnership Forums are part of a highly consultative process to develop the new strategy.

Another opportunity for contribution

The Partnership Forums are one of many opportunities to contribute to the development of the next Global Fund Strategy.

We strongly encourage all stakeholders to contribute to the Open Consultation on strategy development by identifying the most pressing challenges and opportunities in the fight against the three diseases; building resilient and sustainable systems for health; promoting and protecting human rights and gender equality; and mobilizing resources. We also want your views as to how these priorities are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and broader changes in the health and development landscape. We have prepared a series of framing questions and are eager to hear from you on these or other topics.

Stakeholders are also encouraged to run their own Global Fund strategy consultations. Guidance is available here. The Open Consultation is running through the end of 2020. Input received by 1 December 2020 will inform the topics and materials to be discussed at the Partnership Forums.
