Fostering Responsible Local Stewardship of Global Fund Grants.

Technical Assistance to the Global Fund Regional/Country Coordinating Mechanisms

Project Dates: April 2018 - March 2021
Supporting national committees that coordinate Global Fund grants reinforces local ownership and strengthens the effort to end the HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria epidemics.

The Global Fund invests nearly $4 billion annually to accelerate the eradication of the HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria epidemics. To foster local ownership and participatory decision-making, the Global Fund looks to country-level, multi-stakeholder partnerships called country coordinating mechanisms (CCMs). These partnerships work with organizations receiving Global Fund grants to develop programs, submit funding requests, and ensure that the grants are performing in the most efficient and effective way. Through technical assistance, Chemonics is strengthening the CCMs’ capacity to request and responsibly manage Global Fund grants.
