CCM Evolution: Funding for Near-Term Implementation

The Board:

  1. Recognizes the inherent value and essential function of Country Coordinating Mechanisms (“CCMs”) in the Global Fund architecture and acknowledges the need to evolve CCMs to align with the Global Fund Strategy 2017-2022: Investing to End Epidemics;
  2. Recognizes that the Audit and Finance Committee approved USD 50 million as available sources of funds (“Available Funds”) to finance prioritized and costed areas of need on the register of unfunded quality demand, as per GF/AFC04/DP01;
  3. Based on the recommendation of the Strategy Committee (“SC”), decides that the amount of USD 3.85 million of such Available Funds be used instead to fund a phased roll-out of the evolution of Country Coordinating Mechanisms (the “CCM Evolution”) in 2018 and 2019 under the CCM Strategic Initiative, consistent with the interventions and activities under the “intermediate” approach, as detailed in GF/B39/04 – Revision 1;
  4. Requests the Secretariat (1) to develop a set of draft indicators for consultation with the SC at its July 2018 meeting, including near term (process and output) and longer term (outcome and impact) indicators, and (2) to regularly report to the SC on the operationalization of the CCM Evolution;
  5. Directs the SC (1) to utilize the near term results (referenced in part 4 above) as one of the inputs to inform the type of activities and the level of funding for CCM Evolution in the 2020-2022 allocation period, and (2) during the development of the allocation methodology for this period, to discuss the level of funding needed to scale the activities and number of CCMs; and
  6. Asks the Board, Secretariat and partners at country level to support the effective implementation of CCM Evolution, and in particular asks the Secretariat to drive the execution of CCM Evolution through consistent engagement of relevant parts of the organization and with an appropriate mix of resources, both staff and financial, from both current and future allocations.
