The African Constituency Bureau (ACB) for the Global Fund was established by a resolution of African Health ministers in 2012. The ACB, also known as the Bureau, brings together the two African Constituencies West and Central Africa (WCA) and East and Southern Africa (ESA) represented at the Global Fund (GF)to fight HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria. The two constituencies represent 47 African countries that are recipients of GF support for HIV, TB, and Malaria control. The Bureau facilitates collaboration across the two constituencies, facilitates effective engagement, representation, and participation of the two constituencies in GF processes, and enhances their capacity to shape GF policies and processes. It also ensures that Africa’s voice is enhanced to influence Global Health policy decisions.
The ACB in collaboration with AU-NEPAD and a variety of stakeholders including the African Union, WHO, the Global Fund, and African governments will gather experts on market shaping / local manufacturing on February 23-24, 2023 in Johannesburg South Africa. Building on conversations at the recently held side event at the International Conference on Public Health In Africa (CPHIA) in Kigali in December of 2022, a range of experts will be drawn from governments, academia, the Private sector, researchers, representatives of trade and industry, technology transfer companies, regulators, development partners, multi-lateral organizations, financiers, and other global health actors to mainly deliberate on the Global Fund’s Next Generation Market Shaping strategy.
The workshop aims to:
Discuss the draft position paper for Africa and its implications for NextGen Market Shaping
Provide critical input to facilitate its finalization
Develop a roadmap for advocacy and political engagement
Provide inputs to guide the next market-shaping strategy’s implementation.
Specifically, this workshop seeks to influence, through this position paper the development of specific workstreams for the Global Fund NextGen Market Shaping Strategy.
