This Adolescent and Youth (AY) addendum to the CSES outlines a deliberate approach to ensuring youth representation in the processes led by the GFF Civil Society Coordinating Group (CSCG) to ensure their meaningful and active participation in the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of their country investment case.


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,[1] and coordinated action in support of the achievement of national sexual, reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health (SRMNCAH) goals.

This is a bi-annual scorecard that supports in-country civil society organizations, relevant stakeholders and interested members of the country multi-stakeholder platform to regularly monitor the performance of the GFF process and investment cases. It also provides useful information for feedback, remedial actions and accountability.


In 2014, the Nigerian Government assented the National Health Act which provides that 1% of the total national consolidated revenue should be dedicated to finance Basic Health Care Provision Fund (BHCPF) aimed at improving RMNCAH. The GFF Investment Case and its $20m grant which will be provided through the GFF Trust Fund will be deployed in Abia, Niger and Osun States to pilot the BHCPF implementation.
