When: Tuesday, 27 September. 14:00 - 15:30 Central European Summer Time (CEST)
The Global Fund is the largest donor of harm reduction in low-and middle-income countries and its funding is critical for protecting the human rights of people who use drugs, ensuring access to health care and strengthening community systems. Both the Global Fund and UNAIDS put people and communities at the front and centre of their strategies.
To end AIDS and deliver on the ambitious 2025 targets, including the 10-10-10 societal enablers targets and the 80-60-30 community-led responses targets, people who use drugs need to be meaningfully engaged in all Global Fund programmes and processes at all levels. This will require community empowerment and investment in community and key population-led service delivery, research and advocacy.
In preparation for the Global Fund 2023-2025 grant cycle (New Funding Model 4/NFM4), INPUD is organising a webinar to introduce people who use drugs to NFM and particularly NFM4 with the aim to mobilise the community to engage in the processes on national level and influence their outcomes.
• To introduce Global Fund NFM to people who use drugs
• To present Global Fund NFM4 processes and timelines
• To provide tips on how to support community moblisation to maximise engagement in NFM4
The webinar will take place over one and a half hours. Discussion and Q&A from the audience will follow presentations by speakers from INPUD, the Kenya Sex Workers Alliance, PKNI, the Global Fund and UNAIDS.
