COVID-19 is radically altering global health, politics and economics, and the impact upon programs fighting HIV, TB and malaria will likely be tremendous. The new pandemic could completely derail our vast efforts of the past 20 years. At the same time, it has galvanized public awareness on global health security in a way that builds enormous public support for investing in health. That makes it critically important to develop the next Global Fund Strategy to be highly effective, agile and collaborative. We must unite to fight. To succeed, the next Global Fund Strategy needs the best possible input.
In May 2020, the Global Fund has launched an open consultation for stakeholder input across the Global Fund partnership. We strongly encourage all stakeholders to contribute to this open consultation by identifying the most pressing challenges and opportunities in the fight against the 3 diseases, in building resilient and sustainable systems for health (RSSH), promoting and protecting human rights and gender, mobilizing resources, as well as how these aims are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and broader changes in the health and development landscape.
We have prepared a series of framing questions, and are eager to hear from you on these or other topics. The questions are grouped into 5 areas: Overall, Strengthening Program Implementation, Supporting Stakeholders and Partnerships, Delivering Results and Innovation, and Best Ideas for Change. Please answer those questions that are most relevant to you and your work or engagement with the Global Fund.
