You can now register for the 31st Programme Coordinating Board meeting to be held in Geneva, Switzerland from 11-13 December 2012.
Visit the UNAIDS registration page at http://apps.unaids.org/pcb/. The deadline to submit is 23 November 2012.
Members of civil society can attend the meeting by registering as Observers. This is a great opportunity to experience policy making and to have your voice heard. As an Observer, you may have the chance – at the chair’s discretion and after board members have spoken – to give interventions on the floor during the meeting. If you attend, you will be invited to daily civil society debriefs with the Delegation where you will have a chance to ask questions about the issues discussed each day and give feedback on Delegates’ interventions.
Please note: Do NOT register unless you can obtain your own source of funding to attend. UNAIDS and the NGO Delegation are unfortunately not able to fund civil society observers. Observers to the PCB meeting are required to make their own travel arrangements and to cover all of their own expenses, including air fare and their stay in Geneva. Registration does not automatically grant access; all Observers must be approved by the UNAIDS Executive Director and chair of the Board.
If you require a visa to attend the meeting in Geneva: you MUST request one from UNAIDS as soon as possible; UNAIDS does NOT automatically provide letters of invitation. Contact PCBregistration@unaids.org to obtain the necessary letter.
The agenda and all relevant agenda documents can be found at this post as they become available.
