The country dialogues and the process of developing concept notes in three early applicant countries shared some common characteristics, but also differed in many respects.
Five Concept Notes from Early Applicants Have Been Endorsed, and Have Moved to the Grant-Making Stage
Five concept notes submitted by early applicants have been endorsed by the Grant Approvals Committee (GAC). Three of the concept notes are from the country coordinating mechanism (CCM) in Myanmar (one for each disease). The others are from CCMs in El Salvador (HIV) and Zimbabwe (HIV). This information was contained in the 15 May issue of the Global Fund’s News Flash.
As the Global Fund describes it, the “country dialogue” is not something that the Fund created. The Fund says that the term describes a dialogue that already occurs, or at least should be occurring, among the country coordinating mechanism (CCM), implementers, technical partners, donors, governments, civil society and key affected populations.
