To better understand the engagement of civil society in the Global Financing Facility (GFF) processes to date, in the fall of 2015, RESULTS commissioned Global Health Visions and Catalysts for Change to undertake an analysis of civil society engagement and consultation in the development of Investment Cases in the four GFF frontrunner countries. The analysis provided insights on successes and challenges in civil society engagement reported by key stakeholders, as well as lessons learned and recommendations for enhancing civil society engagement moving forward.

This addendum is the result of an additional rapid analysis conducted in October and November 2016, through key informant interviews with 13 national civil society stakeholders in a selection of “frontrunner and second wave” GFF countries and additional inputs gathered through a meeting of civil society representatives engaged in the GFF, which took place in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania on November 1, 2016.
