Terms Of Reference For Hiring A National Consultant To Develop Ccm Rwanda Positioning Strategic Plan
The Global Fund’s Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM) Policy outlines that the CCM should be positioned at the highest level responsible for multi-partner and multi-sectorial development planning in a country. The Global Fund encourages all countries to build on their national structures, wherever possible, and to position the CCM and/or CCM functions within existing health platforms to contribute to central coordination of health programs, investments and pandemic preparedness. In countries actively preparing for transitioning away from Global Fund financing for at least one disease component, positioning planning and implementation may imply more urgent timelines. These two points should be used to adapt the role of the CCM to support a successful transition process and to promote increased sustainability. This can include gradually shifting essential CCM functions and principles to national health institutions as early as possible for proactive transition planning, rather than waiting for a transition grant. Mapping existing health governance bodies in a country is the first step towards institutionalizing CCM functions.
It is in this context that CCM Rwanda is hiring a National/local Consultant to develop CCM Rwanda’s Positioning Plan under the Evolution Strategic Initiative. 2. Scope
