The UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board’s Bureau met in Geneva on 20 April 2011. NGO Delegate Nadia Rafif attended. This meeting covered the upcoming agenda of the 28th PCB and thematic sessions at future board meetings.
Discussion around the UBRAF focused on key points raised at the last multistakeholder consultation: the role of civil society to be better reflected, including resourcing of civil society and a process for developing commons standards for working with civil society; accountability of Cosponsors to be explained more clearly, in particular in relation to non-core resources; detailed workplans for the Cosponsors and Secretariat at global, regional and country level to be developed following the PCB in June; and more.
It was decided that at the 30th PCB in June 2012, a combined theme on the ‘prevention revolution’ and co-infections of HIV/HBV and HIV/HCV will be presented.
