Civil society and community groups find it difficult to engage meaningfully in in-country Global Fund processes
The Global Fund Board will decide on the future of the Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM) Evolution project at the 42nd Board meeting to be held in mid-November.

The CCM Hub at the Global Fund Secretariat, in close collaboration with the USAID Leadership, Management, and Governance (LMG) Project, has developed a new standardized orientation program for country coordinating mechanisms (CCMs).

The Global Fund should review the scope, purpose and role of its country coordinating mechanisms (CCMs), said three donor constituencies on the Board – Switzerland, Germany and France – in a position paper released recently.
