Advocacy for people who use drugs to be centred in the Global Fund Strategy

Share this post

Harm Reduction and INPUD advocate for people who use drugs to be centred, as the Global Fund finalises its Strategy 2023-2028.

Following ongoing advocacy and engagement in the strategy development process – including inputs into the strategy framework as well as first draft of the strategy narrative, HRI and INPUD make three key advocacy asks to the Global Fund Board Delegations:

1. Centre communities – the Strategy must be specific on how its objective to maximise the engagement and leadership of affected communities will be translated into action and delivered.

2. Invest in key populations – the Global Fund must commit to establishing a dedicated funding stream for key populations, with representatives from networks and communities involved in its development and implementation.

3. Connect global to local: the Strategy must recognise communities for their technical expertise, rather than limiting communities to roles that deliver on programmatic goals and objectives set by others – at both global and local levels.
