About AAcrg

The Eastern Africa National Networks of AIDS and Health Service Organizations (EANNASO) is a regional umbrella body bringing together civil society (CS) and community group (CG) voices to inform policies and improve the programming of HIV, TB, Malaria and other health issues present in the communities. 

EANNASO is the current host of the Anglophone Africa Regional Community, Rights, and Gender (CRG) Platform, which seeks to share timely and relevant information, to develop tools, and to provide technical support to promote the inclusion of CRG in HIV, TB, and malaria programs of the Global Fund in the region.


The work of EANNASO as the regional platform is guided by four objectives:

To enhance Community Knowledge of the Global Fund and its processes, through the regular dissemination of targeted information to a diverse audience

To strengthen the coordination of Community Engagement in national and regional Global Fund grants and related processes, making it more efficient and effective

To support strategic community capacity development by fostering spaces for peer learning and exchange and supporting community skills building.

To improve community access to technical assistance through information – sharing and strengthening TA provider capacity and coordination.

EANNASO prioritized access to information for civil society and community groups, in order to enhance the impact of capacity development and learning and evidence to influence decision making around human rights and gender equality. This has seen us use different mediums (infographic posters, video toolkits, physical toolkits) in most commonly spoken languages in the region, (English, Kiswahili, and Portuguese languages, etc.)

The Community, Rights, and Gender Technical Assistance (CRG TA) program is created to help civil society and community organisations and networks make sure that barriers related to community engagement, human rights, and gender equity are addressed by Global Fund grants that are being implemented from January 2021 to December 2023 through technical assistance (TA) programs.
