The Community, Rights and Gender Strategic Initiative (CRG SI) is a three-year $15-million catalytic investment, aimed at strengthening the meaningful engagement of civil society and communities in Global Fund-related processes.

It works through three mutually reinforcing components: (1) A short-term technical assistance program, (2) long-term capacity strengthening  of  key  and  vulnerablepopulation  networks  and  organizations,  and  (3)  six  regional  communication  and  coordination platforms.
