ICASO have published a useful briefing on community systems strengthening (CSS) in the context of the Global Fund's New Funding Model.

The briefing provides an overview on community systems strengthening (CSS) in the context of changes taking place as the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria rolls out its new funding model. The document summarizes how CSS interventions feature in the guidance provided to countries in developing concept notes, which are central to the new funding approaches being introduced by the Global Fund. This overview aims to help to civil society and key affected population groups gain insight on how to position their interests in CSS during the country

dialogues and proposal development processes.

While the overview focuses primarily on CSS in the context of the Global Fund, it will introduce the steps being taking by Global Fund and other partners to deepen the understanding of CSS in other organizations and processes. However, the document will also touch on CSS in the context of UNAIDS-initiated investment frameworks, work done to link CSS and health systems strengthening and related plans for increased collaboration on CSS through an inter organizational task team (IOTT) on CSS.
