India CCM Elections, 2012
The designated term of the current voting members on the India CCM is stipulated to end in June 2012. It is envisaged that the members be selected by the constituencies themselves, following an electronic voting process. It is CCM’s endeavor to encourage the broadest possible participation in this election process to ensure that Civil Society membership to the CCM is truly representative and is inclusive of all civil society groups who are working to impact the course of the three diseases HIV, Tuberculosis, Malaria, alongwith Child Development and Rights, Gender and Sexual Minorities subsectors in the country.
India Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM) for the Global Fund has been created and established in accordance with the mandate laid out by the GFATM board since 2001 to fight AIDS, TB and Malaria. The structure and the concept of the Country Coordinating Mechanism for the Global Fund is intended to reflect the principles of national ownership and participatory decision making. This unique public-private partnership at the national level represents the governing body for the use of Global Fund resources in the recipient countries. The CCM is responsible for coordinating submission of fresh proposals, process requests for continued funding, selecting principal recipients as well as oversight on all GFATM grants.
