GFF We Want

The GFF We Want

When the GFF was launched at the Financing for Development Conference in Addis Ababa in July 2015, it promised to make progress towards universal health coverage by putting women, children and adolescents first. Its overall goal is to contribute to ending preventable Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent deaths by 2030 and improving the health and quality of life of women, adolescents and children in 50 priority countries. In order to deliver on that promise and reach the level of ambition set for the GFF replenishment, a concerted and amplified advocacy effort from civil society across countries at all stages of the GFF lifecycle is needed to move closer to securing commitments to the replenishment and maintaining interest and engagement in funding country investment cases. In November 2018, the GFF Secretariat will hold the replenishment conference, co-hosted by the Governments of Norway and Burkina Faso, the World Bank Group, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which will support the scaling up of the GFF in more countries.

The GFF We Want Campaign aims to elevate the voice of GFF stakeholders and lessons learned by GFF implementing countries by leveraging the opportunity of the GFF replenishment to ensure that progress is made, and our voices are heard

Promote the GFF We Want Campaign by sharing the link to the online GFF We Want Campaign Questionnaire using the hashtags: #GFFWeWant; #GFFCampaign; #GFFVoices; #GFFImpact

Goal and Purpose

The overall purpose of the GFF We Want Campaign is to elevate the voice of civil society and embed lessons learned by GFF implementing countries into global conversations and forums to strengthen cross-country learning, improve accountability, and ensure long-term sustainability of the GFF through the current replenishment and ongoing resource mobilization efforts.

The campaign aims to engage more effectively with a wide range of stakeholders including GFF leadership, existing/potential GFF donors, GFF implementing governments, private sector and others interested in ensuring that the GFF delivers on its intended impact and value-add. This is a collaborative process and Campaign, with input from as many GFF implementing countries as possible.

Objective Short term

Complement current GFF replenishment resource mobilization advocacy efforts with a targeted campaign/messaging that brings lessons from implementing countries into the conversation.

GFF We Want Campaign:

GFF We Want Campaign constitutes 4 broadly framed questions these questions will help to gather insights on how different stakeholder understand the GFF; what they see as its value add; its biggest potential for impact; and what recommendations or thoughts on the GFF replenishment. Response from the GFF We Want Campaign Questionnaire developed into messaging and social media materials at the Oslo CSO workshop, we will share out initial findings of the regional consultation and delve more into the responses from the GFF We Want Campaign Questionnaire. We hope to also plan to host a meeting in Olso to develop a more long-term strategy for the GFF We Want Campaign.

Post Replenishment

We will host a Civil Society Webinar to share out plans and continued advocacy efforts for Continued resource mobilization efforts.
