Country Coordinating Mechanisms (CCMs) are a core part of the Global Fund and include representatives of all sectors involved in the promotion, prevention, and treatment of TB, malaria, HIV, AIDS, and Health /Community systems strengthening.
In Kenya, the CCM was formed in 2002, operating under the Joint Inter-Agency Coordinating Committee (JICC) supported by the Inter-Agency Coordinating Committees (ICCs) for HIV & AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. Thereafter, in 2009 and 2010, the JICC undertook a reform process and the Kenya Coordinating Mechanism (KCM) was established. The membership of the KCM comprises 23 members and 23 alternate members representing Government, Development partners, TB, Malaria, HIV, Faith-based Organizations, Key population, Non-Governmental Organizations, the private sector, adolescents, and young person Constituencies. In 2015, the KCM was reformed into an apex governance structure with standing committees namely, Management, Oversight, Ethics, and Appeals Committee. The KCM provides overall leadership and oversight of the Global Fund grants in Kenya. The KCM Secretariat helps to coordinate and support the KCM operations.
