The first meeting of the Unified Budget and Accountability Framework (UBAF) was held on 10 December 2010 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). The subcommittee consists of Member States, Cosponsors and NGO Delegates.
The official meeting minutes by UNAIDS are now complete. This document includes an informative powerpoint and background information which will help people who are new to the UBAF to understand it.
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 UBAF operationalizes the UNAIDS 2011-2015 Strategy which aims to achieve universal access.
The NGO Delegation intends to continue to share with our constituencies updates and information on the UBAF process and documents. The work of the committee for the 2012-2014 budgets must be completed for presentation to the June 2011 board meeting.
