Table 7 Robert Carr Civil Society Networks Fund: Example of network support

From: How donors support civil society as government accountability advocates: a review of strategies and implications for transition of donor funding in global health

The Robert Carr Civil Society Networks Fund (RCNF) supports civil society networks working to fight HIV/AIDS. Managed by AIDS Fonds Netherlands, it is a multi-donor mechanism supported by Norad, UK Aid, the Gates Foundation, and PEPFAR. RCNF was the first international fund formed specifically to strengthen international networks around the world. It focuses on those that target the needs and rights of inadequately served populations, and views networks as having the greatest ability to reach populations most affected by HIV. RCNF provides programmatic and core funding to consortia of networks, and global and regional networks [82, 94].
