The upcoming UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board (PCB) meeting is taking place from 5-7 June in Geneva. As we prepare for the meeting, the PCB NGO Delegation would like to convene a call with those of you in wider civil society to brief you on the main agenda items and to receive your feedback to inform our strategy for the meeting.
The board meeting will include the following agenda items:
- The 2012 NGO Delegation Report on the worsening impact of reductions in funding for HIV on civil society, including people living with HIV and key populations
- Leadership in the AIDS response
- Follow-up to the 29th PCB thematic segment on HIV and Enabling Legal Environments
- Strategic investment
- UNAIDS Technical Support
- Thematic Segment: “Combination prevention: Addressing the urgent need to reinvigorate HIV prevention responses globally by scaling up and achieving synergies to halt and begin to reverse the spread of the AIDS epidemic”
Please note that all board papers are available on the Delegation’s website at http://www.unaidspcbngo.org/?p=17970.
Ahead of the call, we invite you to visit our NGO Report site where you can download the full report and navigate through key findings and information in seven languages. This report calls on UNAIDS to look at how decreased funding for HIV is impacting UNAIDS strategies’ and its ability to meet the goals of the 2011 Political Declaration. The report and its proposed decision points will be presented at the 30th UNAIDS PCB in June.
