A country’s funding request to the Global Fund is turned into one or more grants through a process called grant-making. The Country Coordinating Mechanism and the Global Fund work with the partner implementing a grant, the Principal Recipient, to prepare the grant. The process sets out how and when a grant’s activities will be implemented and evaluated.
Grant-making during the 2020-2022 cycle looks at lessons learned from past cycles for all partners to work together to develop high-quality grants. Particular focus is put on what can be done before grants are signed to enable swift implementation. Lessons learned include:

Strong financial management increases the ability of Global Fund implementers to achieve greater impact against HIV, tuberculosis and malaria. The Global Fund offers a variety of budgeting resources for implementers, including for use during grant-making.
See Financial Management for more information and documents.
The Global Fund requires a performance framework that outlines the indicators and targets the implementer aims to achieve and a monitoring and evaluation plan that outlines how they intend to collect, collate and analyze the data from programs in order to see if they are, in fact, reaching the envisioned impact.
