The main priority of CMI in the first grant cycle was capacity building, amplifying the participation and voices of young key populations in HIV in policy and decision-making processes, which produced tangible results.
Learning from previous experiences, the consortium is now shifting gears to CMI 2.0 to build, develop, and expand the amplification of YKPs voices in the Global Fund processes.
We work on strengthening the coordination of YPLHIV and YKPs to ensure that the design and implementation of those country-level strategies and programmes reflect their human rights, HIV, and SRHR needs.
The key results achieved by the consortium were:
- Increased YKPs programs in Global Fund grants (Indonesia, Philippines)
- Increased number of YKP in CCMs (Mongolia, Vietnam, Malaysia)
- Recognition from CCMs for YPLHIV networks (Burundi, Zambia)
- Creation of new YKP networks (Georgia, South Africa) and,
- Overall increased engagement of YKPs and YPLHIV in all these countries at different levels
CMI 2.0 Project is funded by Community Rights and Gender Strategic Initiative grant and led by Youth LEAD, Y+ Global, and Youth RISE.
