The Global Fund (GF) is in the process of developing its 2017-21 strategic plan to guide its work in the post-MDG era. In discussions with the secretariat, ICASO and ICSS initiated a consultation process to help develop and validate strategic priorities that civil society (CS) will want to see expressed in the new GF strategy. The Community, Rights and Gender team at the GF provides input and advice to ensure that the ICASO/ICSS initiative is complementary to other processes being undertaken by the GF and others. The first step was a kickoff meeting of global and regional civil society and key affected population networks held in Amsterdam on April 29, 2015. The participants reviewed a draft discussion paper developed by the Communities and NGO delegations, and considered reports on gender and human rights consultations. Findings in this report build on recommendations previously agreed upon.
