Global Financing Facility Investors Group Approves Civil Society Engagement Strategy
Publication Date: 04/28/2017

On April 24th, the Global Financing Facility Investors Group (GFF IG) approved the GFF Civil Society Engagement Strategy to ensure that civil society is meaningfully involved in the GFF partnership, from sub-national to national to global levels. The strategy seeks to ensure the full breadth of civil society skills and expertise contribute to determining and achieving mutual goals and targets, including those laid out by the GFF partnership and countries, the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health, and the Sustainable Development Goals. More specifically, it seeks to ensure that GFF stakeholders will agree and act upon a clear set of roles and responsibilities for enhancing civil society engagement that contributes to improved systems and processes at all levels, with a particular focus on countries, including development, implementation, and accountability for GFF country investment cases and health financing strategies. 

A detailed action plan and budget to resource the CSO  role will  be  presented to the IG for discussion in six months. In the meantime, CSO partner contributions will continue to support the engagements at both country and global levels as feasible. The Partnership for Maternal and Child Health (PMNCH) has set a side USD $100,000 to support catalytic actions in select countries as the fundraising phase begins. In the meantime, any partner wishing to contribute additional resources towards this strategy should contact Kadidiatou Toure at tourek@who.int.
