UPCOMING WEBINAR Engaging Key Populations with Expertise in Treatment Access: Development of Concept Notes for the Global Fund New Funding Model
Wednesday, October 22 8AM-9AM PDT (See Time in Your Time Zone)
The Global Forum on MSM & HIV (MSMGF) and the International Treatment Preparedness Coalition (ITPC) present a webinar on strategies to address treatment access in the context of the Global Fund New Funding Model (NFM).
Civil society is often best positioned to perform a number of vital functions for ensuring and monitoring treatment access, including: education efforts tailored to the treatment needs of key populations; community and health systems strengthening to accommodate comprehensive treatment services; and advocacy with governments, multilateral institutions, and private companies to scale-up access and meet treatment demands.
The Global Fund has historically been the largest multilateral donor to fund access to HIV treatment in most countries. However, Global Fund processes dedicated to ensuring and monitoring access to treatment have not always included civil society, often deferring instead to Ministries of Health.
This webinar will present strategies for engaging community partners with expertise in treatment access in the Global Fund country dialogue process. Featured presenters will discuss approaches for engaging community partners in the country dialogue process effectively, including: ways to identify and engage appropriate community partners; ways to access technical support for concept note development; examples of activities to be considered for a concept note; and general guidance for meeting principles of the NFM. Treatment access in the Middle East & North Africa will be presented as a case study for potential opportunities and challenges as community partners prepare to engage with the NFM in the coming period.

Depressed Black Gay Men (DBGM) Inc. hosts a summit to focus on the LGBT Black and Latino community and the topics around mental health. It will be a highly collaborative, conducive and inclusive environment for stakeholders and the wider community to become informed about academic, health, psycho-social, and overall public policy issues that impact LGBT people of color.
As the first-ever Summit of this type, it will address mental health issues revolving around therapeutic intervention, education, mental illness, and public policies for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Intersex.
It is intended to raise awareness of the many underlying factors which impede a LGBT person from achieving his or her potential in life and to identify ways of effectively addressing these issues, so as to provide efficient and comprehensive solutions and tools to alleviate the suffering of many in the LGBT POC communities.
