Engage! is a guide that is developed with the aim to brief Civil Society and Key Populations colleagues on the New Funding Model en how they can be proactive and engage in the country dialogue processes that lead towards submittal of a Concept Note to the Global Fund.
It was developed with members of the Joint Civil Society Action Plan Task Team and their constituencies: a group composed of the Global Fund, technical partners, civil society representatives, and representatives of key population, human rights and gender organisations. This group seeks to address obstacles in CS/KP engagement in Global Fund processes at country level.

Tribute to Andrew Hunter
ICSS is deeply saddened by the loss of Andrew Hunter, President and founding member of the Network of Sex Work Projects. He died in Bangkok on 26 December 2013.
Andrew’s exceptional and tireless dedication to advance human rights for sex workers was unassailable. He made countless crucial contributions to global policy dialogues and efforts in many countries, always grounded in real-life experiences and fundamental principles of community engagement.
His intellect, piercing wit and strong sense of social justice have made a tremendous impact in improving the quality of life of innumerable people.
Andrew’s remarkable leadership inspired many fellow advocates, within communities of people living with HIV, sex workers and beyond.
Our thoughts are with Andrew’s partner, other family members, friends and colleagues at NSWP and APNSW.
