On holding the pen: reflections from a writer of Global Fund funding requests

5 Sep 2017
No two country processes are the same

This year, I wrote three Global Fund funding requests for African HIV and TB programs. In Window 1 (20 March 2017), I wrote for Zimbabwe; in Window 2 (23 May 2017), I wrote for Zambia; and in Window 3 (28 August 2017), I wrote for Swaziland.

Both Zimbabwe’s and Zambia’s funding requests were invited to proceed directly to grant-making. Swaziland anticipates learning the outcome of its request in mid-October.
