Applicants: civil society networks
The Robert Carr civil society Networks Fund (RCNF) supports civil society networks that are active in the HIV response. Only networks from civil society can apply for future funding. RCNF distinguishes between 3 types of networks: regional, national and consortia of networks.
Why civil society networks?
Civil society networks are capable of making a positive contribution to the global HIV response. They work in close proximity to inadequately served populations (ISP) that face a higher HIV risk than the general population. Networks are open, independent entities (and often include activists and lobbyists) which influence important policy developments at global, regional and national level, leading to more effective and efficient national and local programs – delivered by governments as well as civil society.
