Country Coordinating Mechanism

The Global Fund / John Rae

Eligibility & Performance Assessment

A Country Coordinating Mechanism carries out an Eligibility and Performance Assessment to meet the requirements set by the Global Fund. The assessment produces a complete diagnosis that covers:

  • The level of compliance with Global Fund’s eligibility requirements and minimum standards
  • Prioritized improvement activities

Differentiated assessments

As of September 2018, the Country Coordinating Mechanism Evolution project is underway and learnings from the pilot are being considered and incorporated into future plans. In the meantime, these Eligibility and Performance Assessment strategies are in effect:

  • A light assessment for Country Coordinating Mechanisms
  • A superlight assessment for Regional Coordinating Mechanisms

During October 2019, Country Teams will communicate with Country Coordinating Mechanisms and Regional Coordinating Mechanisms required to conduct an assessment. The deadline for completion and submission by countries is 15 December 2019.

Light assessment

Country Coordinating Mechanisms will comply with eligibility requirements and minimum standards. They will develop an improvement plan and submit it to the Global Fund prior to funding request submission. The Global Fund will assess if the plan is reasonable and acceptable before approving funding.

Superlight assessment

Regional Coordinating Mechanisms will comply with eligibility requirements, develop their improvement plan and submit it to the Global Fund prior to funding request submission.
