TIMS is a regional project that will implement TB initiatives across 10 Southern African countries.
The Regional Coordinating Mechanism (RCM) is central to the Global Fund's commitment to local ownership and participatory decision-making. Such regional-level partnerships develop and submit grant proposals to the Global Fund based on priority needs at the national and regional level. After grant approval, they oversee progress during implementation. RCMs should include representatives from both the public and private sectors, including governments, multilateral or bilateral agencies, non-governmental organizations, academic institutions, private businesses, People living with the diseases, Faith based organizations and Key Affected Populations.
The RCM for the TIMS grant was appointed in 2014. The RCM is made up of representatives from government, the private sector and civil society, and has representatives from the grant’s 10 coverage countries.
