The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria is a global public/private partnership dedicated to raising and disbursing large amounts of additional finance to prevent and treat the three pandemics. The Global Fund has so far committed more than US$10 billion to over 520 programs in 136 countries.

The Global Fund finances programs, among others that focus on the creation, development of partnerships among relevant players within a country, including governments, NGOs, civil society, multilateral and bilateral agencies and the private sector: strengthen the participation of people, particularly those affected by the three diseases: build on existing coordination mechanisms, and promote new and innovative partnerships; encourage transparency and accountability; and eliminate stigmatization of those affected by HIV/AIDS, especially vulnerable groups.

The Global Fund recognizes that only through a country-driven, coordinated and multi-sector approach involving all relevant partners will additional resources have a significant impact. Thus a variety of actors must be involved in the development of proposals and decisions on the allocation and utilization of Global Fund financial resources. To achieve this, the Global Fund expects grant proposals to be coordinated among a broad range of stakeholders through a Country Coordinating Mechanisms (CCM), and that the CCM will monitor the implementation of approved proposals.

The CCM should build on and be linked to existing mechanisms for planning at the national level and be consistent with national strategic plans. The secretariat works closely with the Chair of the CCM to facilitate activities of the CCM-Vietnam.

The Viet Nam CCM is now seeking a Secretary to work within the CCM Secretariat.
