The board discussed a collection of proposed "requirements" and "recommendations" regarding CCM composition and working methods. These proposals had been developed in the course of extensive discussions by the board's Governance and Partnership Committee (GPC), whose members include five developing country governments, four developed country governments, and four civil society members.

- "Communities" vote
After lengthy discussion, the board failed to agree on any procedures whereby the Fund will accept in-kind donations.
The board agreed to set up a new committee, chaired by the Board Vice Chair, to make policy recommendations regarding the provision of technical assistance and capacity development for and through Country Coordinating Mechanisms, Principal Recipients, and Sub-Recipients.
At its board meeting in Geneva on June 28-30, the Global Fund board approved 69 grants that will cost $968 million over the first two years and $2,912 million over five years. The successful proposals came from 50 countries. (For a complete list of approved and non-approved proposals, see "Analysis: Round Four Decisions," below.)
Key decisions made by the Global Fund board at the meeting that ended today were as follows.
Three years ago this week, the world's governments endorsed the UNGASS Declaration. This called for a vastly increased global commitment to the struggle against HIV/AIDS, and endorsed the setting up of the Global Fund as a key financing tool.
CCMs have been the topic of an extensive report from GNP+, of a study by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and of several case studies commissioned by the Global Fund. They will be a major theme at the Fund's Partnership Forum in Bangkok. And they will be discussed in detail at the upcoming Global Fund board meeting.
