The first meeting of the Unified Budget and Accountability Framework (UBAF) was held on Thursday, December 10 in Geneva.
NGO Delegates Rathi Ramanathan (Asia and Pacific) and Rhon Reynolds (Europe) attended the meeting on behalf of the delegation, shadowed by incoming delegate Ebony Johnson (North America).
Civil society engagement in the UBAF is key to ensuring that funding allocations are reaching priority areas and populations and that mechanisms are in place to hold cosponsors and UNAIDS Secretariat to account for progress toward universal access. The subcommittee consists of Member States, Cosponsors and NGO Delegates. The work of the committee for the 2012-2014 budgets must be completed for presentation to the June 2011 board meeting.
