Event Summary

The Global Fund informed the 30th Council of Human and Social Development – Ministers of Health in September 2017 of a new funding opportunity for the Caribbean. The Global Fund has allocated US6.5 million for a multicountry grant for the Caribbean to cover the period 1 October 2019 to 30th September 2022. In keeping with the Global Fund Board’s decision multi-country grants for the Latin America and the Caribbean MUST focus on Sustainability of the HIV services for Key Populations. This is non- negotiable. The Global has also advised that only one application will be accepted from the Caribbean. The implication is that we must work together to submit one concept one by August 2018. The Global Fund subsequently convened a meeting of National AIDS Programme Managers, CSOs and regional organisations in Haiti on 9th November to brief them on the new funding opportunity and to solicit feedback on the Proposed Strategic Areas for the Multi-Country Caribbean and activities.

Process

The Global Fund will draft and finalise Terms of Reference which will be informed by the regional dialogue (consultations) that will be accelerated between 1 January to 31 March 2018. Following the finalization of the terms of reference in April 2018, the Global Fund will issue a call to partners to submit proposals. Partners’ submissions will be reviewed by an independent panel and selection of partners’ activities will be made based on established criteria.

Additionally, a call will be issued for a single Principal Recipient.
