NOTE: The following is taken from summaries released by PEPFAR on the PEPFAR Data Dashboard. They are incomplete summary paragraphs only and do not contain the full mechanism details. When the full narratives are released, we will update the mechanism pages accordingly.

India is among the largest recipients of HIV funding from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis (TB) and Malaria (GFATM), with over $1 billion approved to date. India currently has 13 Principal Recipients (PRs). The India Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM) includes members from 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 to develop proposals for new GFATM funding opportunities.

USG staff, both as members of the CCM and of Department of AIDS Control (DAC) 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, USG staff members are also engaged in reviewing the performance of existing grants and suggesting improvements for effective implementation.

Grant Management Solutions (GMS) is a USAID Field Support mechanism that provides urgent, short-term technical support to countries receiving grants from the GFATM. GMS is 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 CCMs and PRs at country level.

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

Mechanism Target Information

Since COP2014, PEPFAR no longer produces narratives for every mechanism it funds. However, PEPFAR has now included performance targets or indicator information for each mechanism based on the Monitoring, Evaluation, and Reporting (MER) system. The MER guidance is available on PEPFAR's website Note that COP years 2014-2015 were under a previous version of the MER system and the indicators and definitions may have changed as of the new 2.0 guidance.
