This briefing paper reviews the procedures
and processes of the Global Fund with regard to funding local faith-based
initiatives, particularly through the experience of Tearfund partner organisations.
The paper seeks to contribute to the debate on the need for more and better
aid, the implementation of the 'Three Ones Principles', and the role of
civil society organisations in national responses to HIV and AIDS. It identifies
concerns and suggests approaches that could help improve access to resources.
