Global Fund to fight AIDS, TB and Malaria

Globalfund
The Global Fund collects aid money from wealthy nations and business organisations with the express aim of distributing it to developing nations to help fund their programmes to respond to the challenges of HIV and AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria. Since it was established in 2002, the Global Fund against AIDS, TB and Malaria (GFATM) has supported more than 1 000 programmes in 151 countries, providing AIDS treatment for 4.2 million people, TB treatment for 9.7 million people and has helped secure 310 million insecticide-treated nets to prevent malaria infection. South Africa is one of the recipients of Global Fund aid.
The Fund invites countries to apply for funding at various cycles. To learn more about the Global Fund click here Each country needs to have a dedicated team of people grouped into what is called a Country Co-ordinating Mechanism (CCM) to develop, write and submit proposals to the Global Fund to source funding. The CCM is made up of representatives from government, the private sector and civil society. All 9 provinces are represented on the CCM. The CCM is chaired by the SANAC CEO, Dr Sandile Buthelezi, and the Deputy Chair is Jacqueline Bodibe, from civil society.

Call Applications to serve as Principal Recipients of South Africa’s HIV and TB request for funding

The South Africa Global Fund Country Coordinating Mechanism (GF CCM) is preparing to submit a request for funding (RFF) to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria (GF) covering the period from 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2022. The GF CCM has determined that it will need six (6) Principal Recipients (PRs) to implement this grant and has ringfenced three PR spots for the National Department of Health (NDOH), a civil society organisation (CSO) to focus on advocacy with key population networks and a private sector body to bring co-investment and drive alignment to the National Strategic Plan for HIV, TB and STIs (NSP) hence improving efficiency and effectiveness of investment of the private sector for the benefit of employees and their communities. The other three PRs are open to government and CSOs. Hence the GF CCM calls for applications from government departments, civil society and private sector organisations that wish to serve as PRs for the HIV and TB grant The GF CCM has therefore issued the following two calls for applications to nominate four PRs: Bid CCM/PR/2018/01 – To nominate three PRs that will manage the implementation of the GF grant by sub-recipients across the country. Bid CCM/PR/2018/02 – To nominate one PR that will mobilise private sector investment and drive alignment to the NSP thereby improving efficiency and effectiveness of private sector investment for the benefit of employees and their communities.
