GIZ: Country Coordinating Mechanism to Implement Disease Control Programs

The Global Fund is an international financing mechanism that supports countries to implement disease control programmes focusing on HIV, tuberculosis and malaria, its programmes are implemented by in-country partners such as Country Coordinating Mechanisms (CCMs).

CCMs comprise members of various constituencies, which usually include ministries of health (and particularly their national disease control programmes), civil society organisations (faith and non-faith based), people living with the three diseases, and representatives of the private sector and of bilateral and multilateral organisations.
