Strengthening Civil Society Organizations and Government Partnerships to Scale Up Approaches to Engaging Men and Boys for Gender Equality and Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights. Promundo and UNFPA. (2016)

image

This publication is a tool for action developed by UNFPA, Promundo and the MenEngage Alliance. It provides guidance on best practices to promote partnerships between civil society organizations and government representatives on engaging men and boys in gender equality and sexual and reproductive health and rights.

The goal of this publication is to strengthen these relationships to scale up and/or institutionalize evidence-based approaches to promoting gender equality and sexual and reproductive health and rights. This will be critical for moving beyond small scale and pilot initiatives.

Focus on Women and Girls. The Global Fund. (2016)

Even among women and girls, certain groups such as sex workers, transgender women and survivors of sexual and gender-based violence are particularly at risk of HIV infection. As many as 35 percent of women worldwide experience intimate partner violence or non-partner sexual violence in their lifetime, and rates are even higher in countries with ongoing conflict, or enduring post-conflict or post-disaster situations.

Focus on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights. The Global Fund. (2016)

immage

In order to maximize investments for AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, the Global Fund is supporting countries in integrating interventions for these diseases into sexual and reproductive health services. These services provide a country’s health care system with a critical opportunity to reach people living with and affected by the three diseases. For example, many countries use antenatal care visits to provide pregnant women and their families with insecticide-treated nets to protect them from malaria. Treating men, women and transgender people for sexually transmitted infections is an important element in the response to AIDS.

Focus on Key Populations. The Global Fund. (2016)

immage

In all regions, HIV incidence remains high or is increasing among key populations. More than 90 percent of new HIV infections in Central Asia, Europe, North America, the Middle East and North Africa are among people from key populations and their sexual partners; in Asia and the Pacific and Latin America and the Caribbean, key populations account for nearly two-thirds of new infections. Adolescent key populations face higher risks and start to have sex or engage in risky behaviors at a younger age, but there is a clear lack of global data and research on this group.

Focus on Gender Equality. The Global Fund. (2016)

immage

To end the epidemics, we must address gender inequality. The Global Fund’s new strategy takes a strong stand on strengthening the response to HIV, tuberculosis and malaria by supporting programs that address gender inequalities and gender-related risks and remove gender related barriers that prevent people from accessing health services.

Focus on Faith-based Organizations. The Global Fund. (2016)

immage

Faith communities play a fundamental role in addressing health challenges around the world. For decades, these organizations have been providing lifesaving prevention, care and treatment to those in need. Many hospitals and clinics around the world can trace their roots to people of faith and are still being managed by churches and other religious bodies. Faith leaders and institutions have also been fundamental in addressing stigma and educating communities about health.

Involvement of Key Populations and People Living with the Diseases Achieving Inclusiveness of Country Coordinating Mechanisms. The Global Fund. (2016)

immage

The case studies presented here illustrate some of the very real challenges faced by country partners as they attempt to put into practice the Global Fund’s principles of inclusion and participation with regard to key population/people living with the diseases representation on Country Coordinating Mechanisms.

 

They also demonstrate a number of measures that can be put in place to help address those challenges: measures that may contain useful lessons for other countries facing similar or related issues. The challenges range from obstacles preventing the representation of key populations and people living with the diseases on Country Coordinating Mechanisms (limited understanding, for example, on the part of stakeholders with power, of the rationale behind the required inclusion), to the need for enabling mechanisms and appropriate resourcing to ensure that once key population/people living with the diseases’ representatives are appointed to Country Coordinating Mechanisms they can carry out their constituency consultation and grant oversight functions as required by the model.

Gender Equality and Key Populations Results, Gaps and Lessons From the Implementation of Strategies and Action Plans. Middleton-Lee S. (2016)

immage

In January 2016, the Community, Rights and Gender department commissioned a Rapid Review of the current frameworks for implementing the strategies - the Gender Equality Action Plan 2014-2016 and the Key Populations Action Plan 2014-2017. The review was conducted in January – March 2016 by an independent consultant, informed by over 45 key stakeholder interviews and 70 resources. It focused on the role of the Global Fund Secretariat in developing, implementing, monitoring and promoting the action plans. The review will be complemented by a thematic evaluation of implementation of the Gender Equality Strategy at the country level, to be conducted by the Technical Evaluation Reference Group.

The review made the following recommendations for actions by the Global Fund Secretariat to fullfil the high profile given to gender equality and key populations in the institution’s strategy for 2017-2022.

Strategic Actions for Gender Equality. The Global Fund. (2016)

immage

In recent years, there have been significant advances in the response to AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria. But gender-related barriers to services and gender inequality continue to undermine reports to end the three diseases.

 

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is a commitment by global leaders that includes gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls. The Global Fund, through its strategy for 2017-2022, Investing to End Epidemics, is aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals.
