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:
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.)
You can now access CRG TA at any stage of the grant within the 2020-2022 Funding Cycle, including
during grant implementation and program review. The program also supports community engagement
in sustainability and transition planning (STC) or other Global Fund processes like National Strategic Plan (NSP) development.
The CRG TA CANNOT support CCM strengthening, long-term capacity development of civil society
networks and organisations, development of stand-alone tools that lack focus on community
engagement, and Funding Request writing
The CRG Department at the Global Fund Secretariat has pre-approved 26 TA providers who can deliver
the TA. While the TA provider may not be from the region, in most cases (if appropriate) an Anglophone
Africa provider will be sourced. You can ask for a specific provider in your application from the list of TA
providers in Anglophone Africa but the CRG Department takes the final decision
