Community-led monitoring of programs and policies related to HIV, tuberculosis and malaria. A guide to support inclusion of CLM in funding requests to the Global Fund
About this guide
This guide is intended to support the inclusion of community-led monitoring (CLM) in funding requests to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria and related country and regional consultations, dialogues and strategy documents.
Country programs focused on HIV, tuberculosis and malaria face continuing challenges of service quality, commodity supply and distribution, and human rights barriers for key and vulnerable populations.
Community-led monitoring is an intervention through which communities and service users collect data – regular localized, actionable evidence – that can help managers and providers improve services, programs and policies. CLM provides unique evidence from the holistic perspective of people who should be benefitting from services and programs. By offering these insights, CLM helps country health systems advance toward integrated person-centred approaches to provision of quality health and social services.
The Global Fund 2023-2028 Strategy describes CLM as a priority intervention for evidence-based programs and policies. The Global Fund has also posted updated guidance, templates and application materials to encourage country and regional partners to include CLM in funding requests.
Community-led monitoring interventions have been implemented or proposed in more than 60 countries. This guide can help individuals developing Global Fund funding requests understand more about how to include CLM in proposed funding and related program strategies and plans.
