  • Intro to previous scorecards, future scorecards and research projects... We also do country and regional research when requested by stakeholders.
    The evolution of the Country SC, as a need was identified for the Gender SC so we did the SC on Women. Again the research process led us to believe that the idea of Gender was too wide and at the same time too narrow, and that by squashing two marginalised groups, the sexually diverse and women together, we would have been undermining our own desire to highlight the need to focus on each of these issues.... Hence the Scorecard on Sexual Diversity
  • AAI’s strategy.
  • AAI’s strategy.
  • At the 12th Global Fund Board Meeting in 2007, it was identified that a response was needed to address the recognized vulnerability of women, girls and those marginalized because of their sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI)
    The result was the development of the Gender Equality (GE) Strategy and the Global Fund Strategy in Relation to Sexual Orientation and Gender Identities (SOGI) which were adopted at the 18th Board Meeting of the GFATM in 2009.
  • The Global Fund has certain requirements and suggestions surrounding the composition of CCMs. They have nine categories of elected representation.

    • 4. How We Do It AAI believes that strong and accountable leadership is necessary to ensure effective responses to HIV and related health challenges. We do this by Increasing transparency Promoting dialogue and Supporting action to improve the response. Needs-driven, evidence-based research and advocacy that measures performance against the commitments that have been made by governments.
    • 5. “ x ” Human rights are the basis for creating strong and accountable states without which there can be no political stability or social progress. ~ Irene Khan
    • 6. Brief Introduction to AAI’s CCM Project
    • 7. 2007 The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria identify the need to address women, girls and SOGI vulnerabilities. 2009 The development of the Gender Equality (GE) Strategy and the Global Fund Strategy in Relation to Sexual Orientation and Gender Identities (SOGI)
    • 8. 1. The efforts of the Global Fund to incorporate gender and sexual orientation strategies are positive steps forward (Fuleihan et al., 2011; Seal et al., 2011). 2. However, much more should be done to foster the Gender Equality Strategy and Sexual Orientation and Gender Identities strategy to achieve meaningful participation (Ashburn et al., 2009; Grover, 2011; Pangea, 2011; Seale et al., 2010).
    • 9. “The Global Fund encourages the participation of vulnerable groups in CCMs, but it must go further and require CCM membership for the most relevant at-risk populations” (Grover, 2011, p. 20) Implementation of the Gender Strategy was being compromised by a lack of political will from the Global Fund leadership. (Pangea, 2011)
    • 10. The Quantitative Analysis CCM Composition Data & AAI Survey Results
    • 11. • PLWD constituency is smaller in Southern African than in Latin America (11%) Average CCM Composition in Southern Africa (Global Fund, 2011) • KAP constituency is slightly larger in Southern African than the global average (3%).
    • 12. SURVEY QUESTION for CCM Members - Please evaluate the current level of participation of these groups in the Country Coordinating Mechanism.
    • 13. The Community Consultation Interview data from more than 70 CCM members, Fund recipients and Fund Portfolio Managers from 7 African Countries
    • 14. Challenges “Part of what has driven the agenda on the CCM, is the realization that there is a generalized epidemic. Programs tends to keep generalizing any issue to a nationwide level, and when you do that, the specific need of a sub-group tends to be muted or disappear” – Key Informant, CCM Member Zimbabwe
    • 15. Challenges “In this recourse constrained environment, one of the things that a lot of us are pushing on is the fact that now you have to start making choices. That kind of a discussion doesn’t happen. If you do a prioritization workshop, everything’s a priority. Nothing is a priority because everything is a priority. We don’t make choices” – Key Informant, CCM Member Malawi
    • 16. Challenges “There’s no strong civil society here and the government is too strong” – Dundu Macha, CCM Member, Network of People Living with HIV & AIDS, Botswana “I’m not sure about girls though. You don’t really have an organized entity for young girls or an organization where they can channel their interests” – Key informant CCM Member, PEPFAR Namibia
    • 17. How do these challenges affect Global Fund proposals and programmes? 11 % of Round 8 and 9 Global Fund proposals included activities for young girls 2% of Global Fund New Funding Model $ went to civil society in Zimbabwe
    • 18. Weltschmerz (n.) literally “world-pain”; the depression you feel when the world as it is does not reflect what you think it should be
    • 19. So what are we doing? AAI is holding a series of in-country workshops which aim to: •Increase the capacity of civil society to participate meaningfully on the CCM – SOGI and GE Strategy – New Funding Model – Investment Framework (Critical Enablers) •Promote the collaboration of civil society, so that constituencies are consulted and objectives can be voiced on the CCM in a coordinated manner
    • 20. Outcome The Civil Society Priorities Charter
    • 21. What do Swazi Civil Society want from the Global Fund New Funding Model? • Orphans and vulnerable children were prioritized as top key population • PMTCT should focus on patient tracking and home visits, especially around 18 months.
    • 22. What do Zambian Civil Society want from the Global Fund New Funding Model? • Community led service delivery through selfforming groups for more efficient collection of TB medicines. • Emphasis on neo-natal male circumcision
    • 23. What do Malawian Civil Society want from the Global Fund New Funding Model? • Economic empowerment of young girls so they can make decisions about their behaviour • Sex workers and men who have sex with men as top key populations for HIV, and prisoners for TB.
