Evaluation describes France's 5% Initiative for Global Fund grant recipients as "creative" and "relevant"
The 5% Initiative “is relevant in the context of specific difficulties linked to the implementation of Global Fund grants in the French-speaking region….” The initiative is “a creative mechanism combining a bilateral approach within a multilateral framework.”
The 7% Initiative has launched two “mutually complementary, but distinct” calls for proposals: AP-7PC-2018-01 seeks projects aiming to strengthen health systems at all levels from community to national; AP-7PC-2018-02 calls for projects aiming to improve access to high-quality health services for vulnerable populations.
The consultation in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire on the evolution of the country coordination mechanism (CCM) model provided a valuable opportunity for CCM members to share a dialogue among peers and with the Global Fund Secretariat. Participants took advantage of the opportunity to voice their concerns about the challenges they face in ensuring their CCMs function effectively.
