Ghana CCM Starts Evolution Project

Country Coordinating Mechanisms are the Global Fund’s contribution to health governance to help end HIV, tuberculosis and malaria. These entities provide a solid and inclusive foundation to respond to the three diseases as well as existing and emerging global health challenges. The CCM Evolution Strategic Initiative is a catalytic opportunity to enhance the way our partnership works.

Objectives and anticipated results

The objective of CCM Evolution is to equip CCMs to carry out core operations of inclusive oversight and meaningful engagement in alignment with national structures for sustained health governance through:

  • Oversight: Active oversight of existing and emerging investments
  • Engagement: Meaningful, inclusive and active participation of key stakeholders
  • Positioning: Working within national structures and existing emerging platforms to increase the efficiency of health investments
  • Operations: CCM Secretariats’ core functions (including the code of conduct), enabling and sustaining health governance

The anticipated results are to change business as usual, leveraging the opportunity of the strategic initiative to equip CCMs, streamline processes, and invest in results – strengthening governance for existing and emerging health challenges.
