Details for Mechanism ID: 13602
Country/Region: Côte d'Ivoire
Year: 2013
Main Partner: Management Sciences for Health
Main Partner Program: NA
Organizational Type: NGO
Funding Agency: USAID
Total Funding: $1,000,000

The Leadership, Management and Governance (LMG) Program will provide technical assistance (TA) to the Global Fund Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM), principal recipients (PRs), and possibly sub-recipients (SRs) to build capacity in the areas of leadership, management, governance, proposal development, and organization; monitoring and evaluation (M&E); supervision; and resource mobilization. LMG will help clarify the roles and responsibilities of these entities to enable them to fulfill their critical functions and be effective players in rallying all sectors to combat HIV/AIDS, malaria, and TB.

By strengthening these entities, LMG will help create more stable, transparent, and efficient national structures capable of winning and managing increased levels of Global Fund and other donor funding, and thus increase cost-efficiency. Capacity building will strengthen project management, financial and operational systems, and M&E capacities of the CCM and PRs. To support sustainability, LMG will provide ongoing training for new and future CCM members and collaborate with local universities to develop expertise in leadership, management, and governance to ensure sustainable support to the CCM and PRs.

The project performance monitoring plan (PMP) will be used to monitor and report on achievements in technical support to the CCM, PRs, and SRs. The PMP will serve as one component of quarterly and annual reports to PEPFAR, supplemented by evidence-based narratives on substantive achievements in performance during the reporting period.

Target populations for this project are the members and alternate members of the CCM in Cote dIvoire; current PRs; and possibly in select cases SRs.

No vehicles have been or will be bought/leased under this mechanism.

Funding for Health Systems Strengthening (OHSS): $1,000,000

The LMG project will implement capacity building tools to assist the Global Fund Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM), principal recipients (PRs), and possibly sub-recipients (SRs) to strategically plan, implement, and document their contributions to health in Cote dIvoire, focusing on the health systems strengthening building blocks of information, governance, management, and financing. The projects emphasis on governance will help ensure that the CCM and PRs competently manage funds and direct resources and stakeholder participation toward the goal of saving lives. Interventions will work to ensure that activities are implemented in a way that is transparent, accountable, and responsive to the needs of the country.

Strategies proposed by LMG are proven to have spillover effects that benefit other areas of health beyond HIV/AIDS. One major strategy is the implementation of a Leadership Development Program (LDP) strengthening participants capacity to act across functional areas.

LDP participants continue to achieve results after the program ends because the LDP uses:

an experiential learning process that includes reflection on participants real-life experiences;

team learning, which encourages sharing and building on one anothers perceptions and experiences; and

a methodology that motivates participants to work together in a process for achieving results.

By the time an LDP is complete, workplace teams have begun to address real challenges and make solid decisions that improve performance.

Under a predecessor project funded by PEPFAR Cote dIvoire, the LDP with the CCM resulted in systematic use of the CCM dashboard tool; a better-coordinated proposal development process and two successful Round 9 proposals; regular meetings; and better communication. Imparting the skills to the PRs will improve grant performance, a key goal of this project, and help build effective relationships among the CCM, the PRs, and the SRs.

Expected results include two Phase 2 grant proposals, additional resources for health, a model CCM, and grants that are performing well. All expected outcomes of LMG efforts come under the organizational and systems categories.
