Implementation Manual for Global Fund Grants Sub-Recipients
Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM) was established in 2002 as a mechanism for financing response to HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria in developing countries. As a partnership between governments, civil society, the private sector and affected communities, the Global Fund represents an innovative approach to international health financing. The Global Fund's purpose is to attract, manage and disburse resources to fight AIDS, TB and malaria. GFATM does not implement programs directly, it works through contracting a principle recipient the later subcontracts a Sub recipient entity.
In many cases, the partners for Global Fund participate in a local Country Coordinating Mechanisms that provide important technical assistance during the development of proposals and implementation of programs.
UNDP Sudan being the principle recipient developed this Implantation Manual to:
- Enhance Sub-recipients understanding of Global Fund programmatic and operation procedure.
- To maximize partnerships with the civil society in responding to HIV, TB and Malaria through strengthening their capacity to effectively shoulder the responsibilities of GFATM Sub-recipient
