A civil society pre-meeting to the Global Financing Facility Learning Meeting took place on November 14 in Nairobi, Kenya. A short meeting report which outlines the key findings of the meeting was produced. In addition to summarizing civil society experiences in engaging with the GFF in front runner countries, the report includes the key messages that were carried forward by civil society representatives to the learning meeting, as well as the updated minimum standards which were also formally shared during the learning meeting. There was a strong recognition during the learning meeting of the need to involve CSO organizations in the national processes and much remains to be done. The process of selecting second wave countries is indicated here.
