In December 2016, the Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM) Sierra Leone was allocated by the Global Fund the sum of US$90.9 million for HIV, Tuberculosis (TB), Malaria, and Resilient and Sustainable Systems for Health (RSSH) programs covering the period of 1 January 2018 to 30 June 2021. Against this backdrop, the CCM Sierra Leone contracted Health Systems Consult Limited (HSCL) to support the development of grant documents for HIV, TB, Malaria and RSSH components. HSCL also provided advisory services to the country to optimize her grant management processes for improved efficiency.
