The Regional Center for Technical Assistance (CRAT in its Spanish acronym) has developed a strategy to support civil society organizations (CSOs) and community groups in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) to plan for sustainability of their outreach strategies to control HIV, TB and malaria. CRAT is the host of the regional communication and coordination platform under the Global Fund’s Community, Rights and Gender (CRG) Initiative. The initiative provided the funding for the development of the strategy.
Several countries in the region will receive transition funding in 2017-2019 (see GFO article). A key component of the transition process is the sustainability of programs implemented by CSOs and community groups. The governments of countries preparing for transition are expected to work with civil society and communities to ensure their programs are funded after Global Fund support ends.
