The Global Fund’sCountry Coordinating Mechanism(CCM) Policy outlines that the CCM should be positioned at the highest level responsible for multi-partner and multi-sectorial development planning in a country. The Global Fund encourages all countries to build on their national structures, wherever possible, and to position the CCM and/or CCM functions within existing health platforms to contribute to central coordination of health programs, investments and pandemic preparedness. Mapping existing health governance bodies in a country is the first step towards institutionalizing CCM functions.


The Country Coordinating Mechanism of Ethiopia (CCM/E) is seeking to hire a local consultant to generate a mapping of existing health governance bodies, to highlight where they are positioned and the opportunities to enhance cooperation on health investments. Building from this knowledge of the institutional landscape (other donors’ platforms, governmental/ministerial committees / other diseases coordinating bodies, among others), the CCM/E can contribute to robust national health governance. The long-term plan is to ensure alignment of the CCM/E functions with the national health governance structures to ensure a sustainable health governance.

CCM/E is a unique country-level forum that brings together actors from all sectors in the governance of HIV, Tuberculosis, and Malaria national disease programs. CCM/E request financing from the Global Fund on behalf of the country and provide strategic oversight to ensure effective and strategic implementation of the program. An effective CCM/E is central to the Global Fund’s mission of “investing the world’s money to end AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria” in Ethiopia and contribute to the vision of a world free from the burden of these three diseases.


1. Identify existing national health structures, governance mechanisms and platforms responsible for coordinating the health sector and disease-specific issues.

2. Mapping the identified platform’s position within the national systems and in relation to the CCM/E.

3. Support the CCM/E in developing a Positioning plan based on three main phases (refer to the Positioning Guidance Note):

  • Knowledge
  • Coordination
  • Sustainable Structure.

4. Define roles for all constituencies, especially Key affected populations (KAP) and People living with the diseases (PLWD) constituencies, for a meaningful participation in oversight activities and discussions of the CCM/E. Separate roles should be defined taking into consideration the existing CCM/E platform and the positioning plan
