Country Coordinating Mechanisms

Global Fund grants are applied for and overseen at the country-level by Country Coordinating Mechanisms (CCMs), which are made up of members of the private and public sectors, including government, international organizations, NGOs, civil society, academic institutions, private foundations, and people living with the diseases.   As of January 2015, all CCMs are required to have representatives of key populations, in addition to people living with the diseases.

The CCM is primarily responsible for engaging networks and organizations of key populations and people living with HIV or affected by tuberculosis and malaria in a process called “country dialogue,” which includes concept note development, through to grant-making and program implementation.  Ensuring broad participation and meaningful engagement remain challenging for many CCMs for various reasons.

ICASO has provided support to CCMs and generated evidence of good practices for advocates and policymakers.
