“No Such Accountability is Available on the Ground”
A Rapid Appraisal of Community Engagement in Malawi’s Global Fund Processes
In 2017, ICASO supported a local partner—Health and Rights Education Programme (HREP)—to facilitate meaningful and impactful community engagement in Global Fund processes in Malawi.
This appraisal documents key outcomes of community engagement during Malawi’s funding request development process for the 2017-2019 Global Fund cycle. Chiefly, it analyses: (1) The level of funding requested for key program areas; (2) The quality of program design; (3) The inclusion of community articulated priorities in the funding request; and (4) Community-identified successes, challenges, and opportunities to improve their Global Fund engagement.
