GNP+ has a long history of supporting civil society advocates to engage with the Global Fund. Our current CLAIM programme builds on this.
Through the CLAIM (Community-Led Accountability, Influence and Monitoring) programme we enable people living with HIV to fully claim their space in Global Fund processes and claim their role in ensuring that Global Fund grants are developed, implemented and monitored in ways that are effective and inclusive.
The programme is a collaboration between GNP+ and networks of people living with HIV in six countries: Positive Women Together in Action (PWTA) Eswatini, Jaringan Indonesia Positif (JIP), Malawi Network of People Living with HIV (MANET+), Positive Initiative Moldova, Network of People Living with HIV and AIDS in Nigeria (NEPWHAN) and the Association of People Living with HIV (APLHIV) Pakistan.
With support from the Global Fund Community, Rights and Gender Strategic Initiative, we are assisting each of these networks to create Community Forums in their country that will build consensus among civil society on their national priorities; advocate collectively in policy spaces; and make sure that Global Fund investment directly addresses the needs and priorities of communities of people living with HIV in all our diversity.
