• Country Coordinating Mechanisms

    Country Coordinating Mechanisms are central to the Global Fund's commitment to local ownership and participatory decision-making. These country-level multi-stakeholder partnerships develop and submit grant proposals to the Global Fund based on priority needs at the national level. After grant approval, they oversee progress during implementation.

    Country Coordinating Mechanisms include representatives from both the public and private sectors, including governments, multilateral or bilateral agencies, non-governmental organizations, academic institutions, private businesses and people living with the diseases.

    For each grant, the Country Coordinating Mechanism nominates one or more public or private organizations to serve as Principal Recipients.

    CCM Core Functions

    • Coordinate the development and submission of national proposals.
    • Nominate the Principal Recipient.
    • Oversee implementation of the approved grant and submit requests for continued funding.
    • Approve any reprogramming and submit requests for continued funding.
    • Ensure linkages and consistency between Global Fund grants and other national health and development programs.

    CCMs in the new funding model:

    • In addition to the above core responsibilities, in the New Funding Model, CCMs will play a stronger leadership role.
    • This stronger leadership role allows CCMs to:
      • Meaningfully participate in the National Strategic Plan (NSP) discussions at country level
      • Convene stakeholders to engage in inclusive country dialogue and agree on funding split
  • Introduction to the Global Fund and CCMs

    As an international financing mechanism, the Global Fund channels financial resources to help countries reduce the impact of AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria by facilitating the implementation of strong and sustainable programs through in-country partners. Using a performance-based approach, the Global Fund relies on “Country Coordinating Mechanisms,” or CCMs, in each country, “Principal Recipients” (PRs), and other local partners to ensure resources are efficiently used to help those most in need.
