Call for nominations of NGOs (Delegates) for Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Europe, and North America for the UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board NGO Delegation 2016-2017
Thank you for all the excellent submissions. We were overwhelmed with the out pour of highly skilled and well-crafted nominations. Thank you.
Candidates short-listed for interviews by the NGO Delegation will be contacted via email in July. Results of this year’s recruitment for the 4 regions will be announced by mid to late August.
The Joint United Nations (UN) Programme on HIV and AIDS (UNAIDS) was the first UN program to have formal civil society representation on its governing body. It is guided by the Programme Coordinating Board (PCB) with rotating representation from 22 member state governments, the 11 cosponsoring UN agencies of UNAIDS, and an NGO Delegation of 10 civil society representatives, 2 per UN region, which hold the Joint Programme accountable and ensure that the needs of communities affected by HIV are reflected and addressed in strategy and programming. The NGO Delegation to the UNAIDS PCB has four vacancies for a two-year term commencing January 01, 2016 and ending December 31, 2017.
The UNAIDS PCB is the key global forum for HIV and AIDS, and the NGO Delegation is integral to the effective inclusion of community voices, and represents the perspectives of civil society, including people living with HIV, within UNAIDS policies and programming. This presents a unique opportunity for committed activists and advocates to make a difference in HIV and AIDS policy implementation globally and in their regions.
The UNAIDS PCB NGO Delegation is now recruiting for:
- 1 Africa Delegate
- 1 Asia and the Pacific Delegate
- 1 Europe Delegate
- 1 North America Delegate
Applications from people living with HIV, key populations, women and young people are particularly encouraged.
