The Global Fund funding model has been redesigned to bring the Global Fund Strategy of ?Investing for Impact? to life. Its New Funding Model (NFM) is intended to allow the Global Fund and the countries it supports to invest more strategically, to maximize available resources, to reward ambitious vision, and to make bigger impact against the three diseases. Launched initially with a transition period in 2013, the full roll out of the NFM started in March 2014.
The purpose of this information note is to provide guidance for Global Fund applicants to employ the HIV strategic investment approach in the development of Global Fund concept notes. Concept notes replace previous Global Fund proposal documents and are the principal mechanism to request and access Global Fund funding under the NFM.
