Established by a resolution of African Health ministers in 2012, the African Constituencies Bureau for the Global Fund (ACB) was set up to be a platform for facilitating engagement, participation and consensus building among East and Southern Africa (ESA) and West and Central Africa (WCA) constituent countries in Global Fund policies and governance engagements. Also known as “The Bureau”, the organization is an operational hub and policy think tank of the WCA and ESA Global Fund constituencies, and begun its formal operations in March 2017. The purpose of the Bureau is to ensure effective engagement, representation and participation of the Africa constituencies in Global Fund processes as well as enhancing the capacity of the Africa constituencies to shape Global Fund policies and processes.
The Global Fund governance deliberation processes are largely in English, with interpretation provided during board meetings and on very rare occasions translation of documents. There is therefore an on-going priority to ensure francophone countries in WCA and ESA are supported with translation of documents.
ACB has undertaken a series of policy research reports to provide key input into strategic discussions that fed into the Global Fund’s 44th, 45th and 46th Board Meetings as well as the Partnership Forum. Data mining and analysis to gather evidence from the policy research topics is on-going and will continue to inform future policy discussions on Africa’s priorities. Where relevant and appropriate, the ACB used the evidence generated from the 12 policy research topics to complement findings from other sources and developed position and constituency statements that reinforced Africa’s narratives.
SCOPE OF WORK
Through this translation action, the ACB therefore seeks to enhance the contribution of francophone countries in Global Fund governance deliberations, and at various levels within the ACB’s engagement platforms:
