Hosting of the Third Annual Anglophone African Regional Conference

Over 100 participants form 24 English speaking African countries participated to take stock through sharing of experiences, tools and methodologies and promote dialogue which would inform policies and improve the programming of HIV , TB, Malaria and other health issues present in Africa.

Strengthened Collaboration with the National AIDS Control Program (NAC):

NSA-Ghana seeks to effectively collaborate with various programs in order to be well informed to effectively take on issues. Dr Stephen Ayisi Addo, the Programmes Manager of the National AIDS Control Program (NACP), held a series of meetings to discuss strengthening partnerships between CSOs and government agencies in achieving the 90-90-90 HIV/ AIDS target. These meetings were important for NSA-Ghana to get first- hand information on strides being made, but also where the gaps lie and the causes for these, so that NSA-Ghana is well equipped to enable it take on its advocacy role.

CSO Mapping: Exercise Development of the NSA-Ghana Charter

Ghana submitted its funding requests for HIV/TB and malaria in June 2017. As the Global Fund grants in Ghana include key components that are designated for implementation by civil society and community-based organizations (CSOs) a Community System Strengthening project was included in the funding request. Despite this component being recommended for grant making, there was the need for adjustment to showcase clear implementation strategies that would shoe value for money as well as impact. This called for the undertaking of strategic planning including mapping of CSOs. NSA-Ghana through the CCM sought for Technical Assistance to get a consultant who assisted in the mapping of about 50 organizations made up of CSOs, KAP, faith based organizations, youth groups, community traditional leaders and the media according to the strategic planning requirements. The consultant also assisted in the putting together of a CSS Strategy 2018 – 2020.

Consultative Meetings

NSA-Ghana consultative meetings are held every quarter to sensitize and update CSOs on the Global Fund architecture for better understanding as well as trending policy gaps and advocacy issues. Examples so far have been on the priority areas to be considered for inclusion in the Global Fund’s New Funding
request, CSO plan of action regarding Ghana’s co-financing obligation

which continue to lead to loss of donor funding, low performance of the government PR per the Global Funds performance rating and issues around inefficient data management which does not correctly inform programming but tarnishes the image of Ghana as a whole.

A WhatsApp platform has also been set up for active communication among members on issues of national concern in relation to our goal.

Development of the NSA-Ghana Charter

NSA-Ghana’s founding and key member organizations developed a charter for them through consultative meetings. The NSA-Ghana Charter outlined their vision, mission, goals, objectives, guiding principles, governance structure, membership, focus, and priority issues for advocacy and funding. The Charter is to be updated every two years.
