Who we are
Country Coordinating Mechanism Suriname
Country Coordinating Mechanism Suriname (CCM Suriname) is committed to fighting AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria in Suriname. CCM Suriname was founded in 2002 as a central part of The Global Fund. The organization mobilizes and invests Global Fund grants to support national health-care programs.
Foundations and aid organizations in the field of healthcare, education and social welfare can submit their projects for The Global Fund through CCM Suriname. CCM Suriname assists these organizations in preparing and submitting their project plans and coordinates the execution during the implementation.
The Global Fund
The Global Fund is an international partnership organization set up to accelerate the end of AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria as epidemics. The organization raises and invests money to support local health-care and education programs, and create a sustainable and constructive contribution to reducing the effects of these diseases.
Country Coordinating Mechanisms
Country Coordinating Mechanisms or CCM’s are crucial parts of The Global Fund’s commitment to local ownership and participatory decision-making. These country-level multi-stakeholders develop and submit grant proposals based on priority needs at the national level. This means that a national board of members, authorized by The Global Fund, decides which programs are being realized based on local necessities. After a grant proposal is approved of, the CCM will coordinate and supervise the project to make sure the required results are being met.
Country Coordinating Mechanism Suriname strives to deploy the obtained funds in benefit of the nationally oriented approach that is coordinated as well as multi-sectorial. It is of the essence that the submission of local health-care programs is as transparent and open as possible. In addition, these programs have to participate in the national strategies of Suriname.
