The CCM Ghana

The Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM) of the Global Fund to fight HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria is a country-driven and multi-sectoral partnership of relevant stakeholders with health programs in the three disease areas. They comprise representatives from government, private, civil society, bilateral and multilateral agencies, academia, professional associations and people living with either of these diseases.

Since the Global Fund does not have offices in implementing countries, the CCM is central to the Global Fund's commitment to local ownership and participatory decision-making. As a country led body, the CCM is expected to engage a variety of actors in decision-making processes through a country dialogue in order to develop a national proposal based on priority needs and gabs identified in the three disease components. Additionally, the CCM is responsible for overseeing progress of program implementation. As part of this oversight role, the CCM appoints the Principal Recipients of the Global Fund grants through a fair and transparent selection process.
