India is among the largest recipients of HIV funding from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM), with $850 million approved to date. India currently has 13 Principal Recipients (PRs). The India Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM) has 40 members, representing the Government of India, state governments, academic and research institutions, multilateral/bilateral agencies, civil society, the private sector and people affected by HIV/AIDS, TB and Malaria. The CCM is mandated to coordinate and oversee the planning and performance of ongoing grants and developing proposals for any new GFATM funding opportunities.

USAID staff, both as members of the CCM and of the National AIDS Control Organization (NACO) Technical Resource Groups, have contributed to the development and review of most GFATM proposals and support the implementation of ongoing grants. As a member of the CCM Oversight Committee, USAID staff members are also engaged in reviewing the performance of existing grants and suggesting improvements for effective implementation.

Grant Management Solutions (GMS) is a Field Support mechanism that provides urgent, short-term technical support to countries receiving grants from the GFATM. GMS is a USAID-funded project implemented by Management Sciences for Health (MSH). GMS assists in governance and leadership challenges; financial and grants management; procurement and supply management; monitoring, evaluation and reporting; and improving the skills and participation of civil society organizations and local consultants. GMS primarily works with Country Coordinating Mechanisms and Principal Recipients at country level.

This project will contribute to Goal 3 of PEPFAR/India’s Country Strategy: Building on Country Leadership and Commitment.
