Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM) engagement – a technical brief

The Global Fund Strategy 2023-2028 places more emphasis on community engagement and puts people and communities at the centre, and this principle should be embedded in one of its key instruments – a Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM) and to be applied throughout Grant Cycle 7.  One of the key principles of the CCM is to engage key populations in its processes in a way that allows their input and voices to be heard. Yet, people who use drugs are still rarely represented in national CCMs, and too often are excluded from decisions and discussions that impact our lives.
