The Global Fund’s Country Coordinating Mechanism evolution project prepares consultants at Casablanca workshop
The Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM) hub of the Global Fund Secretariat organized a workshop in Casablanca, Morocco, from September 17 to 21, 2018, aimed to orient consultants who have been selected to support the 18 countries included in the pilot phase of the Global Fund’s CCM evolution project.
The Global Fund Board has adopted a set of “principles” governing the selection of LFAs (some of the principles are really policies); has delegated to the Audit and Finance Committee (AFC) the authority to modify the principles; and has delegated to the Secretariat the authority to establish the procedures for procurement of LFA services. The principles were recommended by the Secretariat and endorsed by the AFC.

La nouvelle stratégie du Fonds mondial pour la période 2017-2022 met l’accent sur la pérennité des investissements.

The TERG applauds the principles and directions of current strategy but identifies several areas requiring improvement
The Global Fund Strategy 2012-2016 remains as valid now as it was when it was developed in 2011 and its principles and directions should continue to guide the Fund in the coming years. This was a central conclusion of the Strategic Review 2015, carried out by the Technical Evaluation Reference Group. A report on the review was provided to the Board at its meeting on 16-17 November.
The Global Fund Board has approved an operating budget of $305 million for 2016, which includes $16.3 million for the Office of the Inspector General. This compares to actual expenditures of $286 million in 2014 and projected expenditures of $296 million for 2015.
