This guidance document, the second in the series Navigating the New Funding Model, is intended as a tool for civil society organizations which are engaged in, leading, or monitoring country dialogues. An explanation of the key features and expected outcomes of the country dialogue process is followed by a discussion of country dialogues in practice over the past year. A review of existing analyses and interviews with civil society participants in country dialogues inform a discussion of the principles of effective country dialogues. For the purposes of this document, “effective” country dialogues are those which include significant and meaningful civil society and key population participation and inform a concept note which reflects the true nature of a country’s epidemics and an inclusive strategy for combating them.
