[Download this publication in 4 languages here: English, Russian, Spanish and French]
As part of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (The Global Fund) Partnership Forum consultations, nine Key Correspondents (KCs) from seven countries captured voices from the field in local contexts and produced articles and videos on specific themes. CNS and AIDS Portal led by Nadine Ferris France published select articles and released the publication in four languages at the Global Fund 2011 Partnership Forum in Sao Paulo, Brazil (28-30 June 2011). The publication in 4 languages is available online at: EnglishRussianSpanish and French.

The KC articles were on the following themes:

1. Thinking about what it funds and the way funding is currently provided, what should the Global Fund to fight AIDS, TB and Malaria do more of – or less of – in order to maximize value for money and increase the number of lives saved and infections prevented?

2. What changes can the Global Fund make to its model to address barriers in the delivery of evidence-based services to most at risk populations - in a way that protects human rights and prevents and manages violations?

3. What more can be accomplished for the three diseases by focusing on women and children?

4. How can the Global Fund do more to strengthen risk management and ensure that its funds are used transparently, yet still support the principle of operating with simplified, rapid and innovative processes?

5. What are the ways that country-level partnerships can be strengthened to improve outcomes and impact for the three diseases?

The KCs were: Bharathi Ghanashyam (India), Bobby Ramakant (India), Evgenia Maron (Russia), Henry Neondo (Kenya), Ignatius Gutsa (Zimbabwe), Jittima Jantanamalaka (Thailand), Shobha Shukla (India), Suksma Ratri (Indonesia) and Vladimir Encarnación Jáquez (Dominican Republic).

The KCs made an earnest effort to document voices of people living with and affected by HIV, TB and malaria on a daily basis in their own country's contexts. We would like to thank all those who were interviewed as part of this project and who took the time to share their views.
