CALL FOR APPLICATIONS FOR PRINCIPAL RECIPIENT FOR GLOBAL FUND SUPPORTED COMMUNITY SYSTEMS STRENGTHENING
The Ghana Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM) hereby announces its intention to apply for financing from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM) for the New Funding Cycle to be implemented 1 January 2021- 31 December 2023. Ghana has been allocated US$226,696,057 for HIV, tuberculosis, malaria and building resilient and sustainable systems for health (RSSH). The CCM is in the process of developing a funding request for submission to the Global Fund by May 25, 2020, for approval and grant-making.
This Call for Applications seeks a Civil Society Organization to serve as Principal Recipient (PR) to manage up to $17 million to maximize community-led efforts to achieve 90/90/90 for HIV and TB. “Civil society" is defined as consistent with the sector groups in the CCM Constitution (Article 4.5), to include: private sector; NGOs/CBOs; professional associations; faith-based organizations; persons living with or affected by the disease; key affected populations; women and children interest groups; and academic and research institutions.
The CCM is seeking an organization to strengthen and expand community responses that address bottlenecks in maximizing the scale-up of the HIV and TB treatment cascade, including addressing human rights and gender-related barriers. This funding aims to provide direct support to civil society-led programs, while strengthening community systems, including through effective governance and oversight.
