Communications & Consultation Facility
The Communications and Consultation Facility (CCF) – formerly known as the Communications Facility – has supported the NGO Delegation since 2008 by facilitating communications between delegates, amongst the regions, and between the NGO Delegation and civil society; strengthening participation and ensuring the inclusion of the voices of the community in UNAIDS programming.
The CCF provides the delegation with independent support, while working in collaboration with the UNAIDS Secretariat. Its main goals are to support the internal management of the Delegation and to help facilitate its communication and consultation with wider civil society to ensure that the PCB NGO Delegation is appropriately nominated and equipped to represent civil society issues to the PCB.
The CCF is hosted by different NGOs for as per contracted term and approval by the NGO Delegation and UNAIDS Secretariat. From 2008-2010, it was hosted by the World AIDS Campaign in Amsterdam, Netherland; from 2010-2012, by the International Council Of AIDS Service Organizations (ICASO) in Toronto, Canada; and since 2013, by the Asia-Pacific Network of People Living with HIV (APN+) in Bangkok, Thailand.
