Technical Assistance to the Global Fund Regional/Country Coordinating Mechanisms

Project Dates: April 2018 - December 2020
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 invested 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 looked to country-level, multi-stakeholder partnerships called country coordinating mechanisms (CCMs). These partnerships worked with organizations receiving Global Fund grants to develop programs, submit funding requests, and ensure that the grants were performing in the most efficient and effective way. Through technical assistance, Chemonics has strengthened the CCMs’ capacity to request and responsibly manage Global Fund grants.
