Country Coordinating Mechanism

The Global Fund / John Rae


For a Country Coordinating Mechanism to receive funding from the Global Fund, and in the interest of enhancing good governance, every Country Coordinating Mechanism fulfills six eligibility requirements:

  • Eligibility requirement 1: Carry out a transparent and inclusive funding application development process
  • Eligibility requirement 2: Facilitate an open and transparent Principal Recipient selection process
  • Eligibility requirement 3: Oversee program implementation and implement an oversight plan
  • Eligibility requirement 4: Document the representation of affected communities
  • Eligibility requirement 5: Ensure representation of nongovernmental members through transparent and documented processes
  • Eligibility requirement 6: Adopt and enforce a code of conduct and conflict of interest policy


Requirements 1 and 2 are assessed by the Global Fund Secretariat at the time a Country Coordinating Mechanism submits a funding request for its disease programs.

Requirements 3 through 6 are regularly assessed through the Eligibility and Performance Assessment carried out by the Country Coordinating Mechanism.
