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 gaps 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.

Stakeholders, I must emphasize, showed an improved commitment and promise to achieving the goals set for HIV/TB, Malaria and health systems strengthening. We look forward with renewed optimism to achieve better results in 2019 through strategic consensus, enhanced optimization and effectiveness of our available resources.  

The Hon. Minister of Health and the Director General of the Ghana Health Service were particularly reassuring in advancing the CCM mandate and we are grateful for their support in the stakeholder engagement, and other activities over the years.
