Fast Facts e-Poster on the Global Fund’s Country Coordinating Mechanisms (CCMs) in Africa

The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria has recently published the 2012 CCM Composition data on its website. While AIDS Accountability International commends this transparency, the nature of the large Excel file-format does not make the data accessible or easy to interpret. This is a barrier to accountability. Responding to this need as urgently as possible, AAI has created a CCM Fast Facts e-Poster which highlights some of the more important statistics on CCM composition in Africa. For instance, did you know that only one country in Africa has sex worker representation? Which country only has 5% women sitting on its CCM? Do you know which three African countries have members representing men who have sex with men?

The Global Fund’s Country Coordinating Mechanisms (CCMs) are the in-country boards in charge of deciding what goes into Global Fund proposals, and how the grants are divided up and managed. Who is sitting on these boards? Who is really affecting the Global Fund decision making process?
