The Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM) of the Global Fund has in the recent past been undergoing some reforms rationale in order to improve the performance of GF grants. On 27th October, 2010 the CCM re-branded itself to Kenya Coordinating Mechanism (KCM) with a membership of 18 people from the original 27 and Ex Officio Members comprising the Chairpersons of the Inter Agency Coordinating Committees for each of the three disease components (TB, Malaria and HIV and AIDS) and the Principal Recipients for both the Public and the Non-State actors.

KCM is composed of two (2) level committees, namely the National Oversight Committee (NOC) which provides the overall leadership for the Coordination of the Global Fund grants in Kenya and three (3) Interagency Coordinating Committees (ICCs) for each of the disease components (TB, Malaria and HIV and AIDS) at the Technical Level.
