Country Coordinating Mechanisms apply for their allocated funding by completing and submitting a funding request.
Our 2020-2022 funding cycle e-learning courses guide applicants on how to complete funding request forms and key annexes. Visit iLearn
Each funding request includes an application form, key annexes and supporting documents. The Applicant Handbook contains an “Essential Application Materials Checklist” with guidance and requirements:
This page provides a summary of the checklist.
There are five types of funding requests. The Global Fund communicated to applicants which type of funding request to complete for each component in the country’s December 2019 allocation letter.
The Full Review Funding Request application requires a comprehensive review of strategic priorities and programming in higher burden countries.
The Program Continuation Funding Request enables well-performing programs which require no significant changes to continue implementation with minimal distraction.
The Tailored for National Strategic Plans Funding Request has documentation requirements that rely primarily on suitable national strategic plans referenced in place of the funding request narrative.
The Tailored for Focused Portfolios Funding Request application is streamlined and designed to meet the needs of countries with smaller funding amounts and disease burden, and to ensure targeted investments have the greatest impact.
The Tailored for Transition Funding Request is suitable for countries approaching transition from Global Fund financing, building sustainable programs with decreasing Global Fund support.
Applicants also submit a series of key annexes relevant to their funding request.
By summarizing national goals and targets related to the diseases and comparing this to what can be achieved with current levels of domestic and external funding, the programmatic gap table shows the needs and gaps that are key to achieving impact. This provides a holistic view of expected outcomes and results along with remaining gaps to strategically guide investment choices.
This table is an overview of who is paying for what in the health program. It does this by illustrating the total funding need for the health program and detailing how the country plans to meet that need, whether through domestic resources, external donors, Global Fund support or otherwise.
This document links program goals and objectives to the chosen program modules, interventions and indicators by focusing on which indicators and targets will be reported on by the country. It is a statement of the expected performance of the Global Fund-financed programs over the implementation period.
The performance framework template is customized for each country and sent by the Country Team.
The budget shows the strategic investment linked to the intervention choices made by the applicant. It shows the projected costs for each of the modules and interventions chosen by the applicant.
The budget template is customized for each country and sent by the Country Team.
This tool is an instrument that shows all health products and health technologies that will be funded by the Global Fund. If these are not being funded by the Global Fund, it is not necessary to include this annex.
The applicant should provide a visual depiction of the relationships between funds, organizations and programs that are a part of a grant or set of grants.
Applicants use Essential Data Tables to develop a data-informed funding request. Each table is pre-filled with indicators for HIV, TB, malaria, and resilient and sustainable systems for health using publicly available data. Applicants add in and submit additional data used in the development of the funding request.
Applicants also submit documents related to the process they followed to develop the funding request.
As part of the application, applicants must demonstrate that each member of the Country Coordinating Mechanism endorses the final funding request.
Applicants must confirm that they are in compliance with Country Coordinating Mechanism Eligibility requirements 1 and 2, and meet the application focus requirements.
Applicants also include supporting documentation demonstrating how they are meeting co-financing requirements and commitments.
Applicants can use their own format for this supporting documentation. A template is available as an example.
Applicants also submit additional documentation as relevant and in their own format.
