Adolescent and Youth (AY) Addendum to the Global Financing Facility Civil Society Engagement Strategy
Global Financing Facility
The Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health 2016-30 highlights the importance of adolescent health and well-being as being essential to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) by 2030. For adolescents to survive, thrive and transform their societies, the global community needs to invest in their health and well-being.
Today’s adolescents are well-positioned to mobilize their peers, advocate for increased resources for sexual and reproductive health and rights, influence their governments to invest in addressing their needs, and demand accountability for commitments related to their health and development. The Global Financing Facility (GFF) Civil Society Engagement Strategy (CSES) and related implementation plan provide a clear framework for civil society organizations’ (CSOs) contribution to the improvement of health outcomes through coalition strengthening, meaningful participation in multi-stakeholder country platforms responsible for coordinating health plans and their implementation, and coordinated action in support of the achievement of national sexual, reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health (SRMNCAH) goals.
