      Thanks Aditya. Technically, those already on board CCM or PRs/SRs should not represent as CCM members. In case they are already receiving GF money, in fact should pull out of CCM. There must be a fair representation from the CSGs as well.

      Thanks.

      FYI all, attached is the COI and Core-Ethics policy of GFATM. Took the trouble of reading it up. In sum, it does not apply to Community Reps on CCM, and here's why:


      Covered Individuals, on whom the COI clauses apply, are either board members, TRP members, or employees of the fund, or its subsidiary bodies.

      The CCM is not a subsidiary body of the fund...proven among other things, by the fact that Covered Individuals have been saddled with the responsibility of NOT ACTING in a manner that causes THEM to have a COI with the CCM.

      The Community Rep on the CCM is neither a Board member, nor an employee, nor an agent, nor an associate of GFATM as per the attached policy.

      On another score, NGOs and BIG-ASS PRs like Alliance and PSI, cannot and should not be conflated with puny-ass community SRs or SSRs like Humsafar or Sangama or SAATHII...

      For community SRs/SSRs, there is no conflict of interest, only a conflation of interest in ensuring that an adversarial state that does not care about the community and controls the CCM with a HUGELY majority vote, does not completely disregard the interest of the community.

      The pittance of 1 seat in the CCM for a MSM/TG community rep was made in the first place due to this very reason. No right thinking person can say that just because the community has been allowed a vote in a CCM overwhelmingly ruled by the government/state, they should be deprived of the benefit of support from GFATM grant... that is dangerous logic ... 

      The Accountability Wallas should have a serious re-think of their appeal. I do not think destroying and disempowering communities was their intent...

      Best,
