    The Global Fund conducted the Workshop for Strengthening CCMs as Public-Private Partnerships from 16-18 March, 2005 at the Taj Pamodzi Hotel, Lusaka, Zambia. The main objective of this workshop, funded by Johnson & Johnson, was to clarify roles and responsibilities, in particular the requirements of CCMs during the life cycle of the grant.

    The workshop agenda was designed to facilitate CCMs learning from each by sharing experiences through presentation of case studies of selected CCMs and through more in-depth discussions during the working group sessions. The workshop was also consistent with the Global Fund’s efforts to listen and learn from the recipient countries.

    Forty-nine participants from eight countries in Southern Africa and from Ghana participated in the workshop. Participants identified constraints and barriers to meeting the CCM requirements and formulated recommendations to ensuring true multisectoral representation, participatory and inclusive functioning of CCMs. Each CCM developed a 12 month follow-up action plan to be implemented by CCMs with support from country level partners.
