NOTES ON THE FIRST UNAIDS GLOBAL REVIEW PANEL MEETING
By Jeffry Acaba (NGO-Asia-Pacific) and Alessandra Nilo (NGO-LAC)
Pursuant to the 39th PCB Decision Point 6.4, UNAIDS was requested by the Programme Coordinating Board (PCB) to establish a Global Review Panel to review the ‘fit for purpose’ and relevance of the UN Joint Programme on HIV/AIDS. This was intended to respond to the budget crisis facing UNAIDS, with the aim to make the Joint Programme more efficient. The Panel review will include recommendations in updating the UNAIDS operating model based on three pillars: joint working, financing and accountability, and governance. The Panel was convened by Helen Clark, Administrator, UNDP as head of the UN Development Group, and Michel Sidibé, Executive Director, UNAIDS.
