In this edition of the Operational Update, we are sharing resources for Grant Cycle 7 (GC7).
Updated resources. Some funding request materials have been updated to address issues from Window 1, including the RSSH Gaps and Priorities Annex [ download in English | Español | Français ] , Funding Priorities of Civil Society and Communities Most Affected by HIV, Tuberculosis and Malaria Annex [ download in English | Español | Français ] , Funding Landscape Table [ download in multiple languages ] , Health Product Management Template [ download in multiple languages ] and its user guidelines [ download in English | Español | Français ] .
New resources. Grant-making resources now include a video with key changes for GC7, a Partner Portal Guide [ download in English | Español | Français ] and a revised section on the Global Fund website; a new e-learning course presents the revised budgeting guidelines. We are also highlighting new requirements for community engagement during grant-making.
The COVID-19 Response Mechanism continues to work with countries to adapt COVID-19 funding and reinvest in systems for health and pandemic preparedness, in complementarity with GC7 grants. Country Teams will be working with implementers of C19RM funding to further focus COVID-19 investments in surveillance, labs, oxygen, community health workers and supply chain to prepare for the next pandemic, as per the updated C19RM Technical Information Note [ download in English | Español | Français ] .
In addition, we remind Principal Recipients, recipient representatives and sub-recipients of Global Fund resources about requirements on reporting and responding to allegations of sexual exploitation, abuse and harassment.
