The Governance Task Force met over the course of 2 days in Geneva on February 24-25. The members of the task force discussed ways of improving the working methods of the PCB, which included the review of roles and responsibilities of selected PCB Members, such as the Chair, the Bureau and PCB officers, and the formulation of clearer guidelines in the drafting room and around intervention practices. The task force highlighted the need to ensure that past PCB decisions were implemented and the need for better accountability in issues related to allocation of human and financial resources and joint working. Also discussed in the meeting was the need for better linkages between the UNAIDS board and boards of the Cosponsors.
The implementation plan was circulated by UNAIDS to the members of the task force for comments.
The next meeting of the Governance Task Force will take place on March 22-23.
