The local consultant will facilitate the training of CCM/E Oversight Committee members, Principal Recipient and Sub-recipient focal points on the programmatic management of Global Fund NFM3 grants. The local consultant will identify training needs, drafting training topics and coordinate training sessions.
The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM), was created in 2002 as an innovative financing mechanism that seeks to rapidly raise and disburse funding for programs that reduce the impact of HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria and RSSH in low- and middle-income countries. The GF is structured as a partnership between developed countries, developing countries, the private sector, civil society and affected communities.
Unlike many other donors, the GF does not have offices in the countries. Rather, it has Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM) to ensure that resources are used efficiently, and that programs funded by the GF reach the people most in need. CCM is a country level partnership of stakeholders, responsible for developing and submitting grant proposals/concept notes, nominating PRs, and providing oversight to grant implementation. The Country Coordinating Mechanism of Ethiopia for the Global Fund (CCM/E) was established in February 2002.
Global Fund funding cycle runs in three-year periods that directly correspond with the donor Replenishment periods. The current funding period runs from July 2021 – June 2024. The effective implementation and monitoring of grants is at the core of Global Fund work to end HIV, TB and malaria as epidemics and forms the longest part of the funding cycle. However, there is capacity gap in adhering to the Global Fund grant management policies, implementation of the grant accordingly, and timely reporting the performance to the Global Fund. With the financial support of GIZ, the CCM/E is planning to build the capacity of CCM/E Oversight Committee members, PR, and federal level SR focal points to improve the management and oversight of the Global Fund grant. The planned support will be provided by a national consultant hired independently by the CCM/E.
