This section lists decisions made at the PCB Meetings.
The PCB stressed that the Strategic Plan should be more than the sum of the contributions of the Secretariat, Cosponsors and other UN organizations, demonstrating a clear overall strategic vision and the respective roles, responsibilities and comparative advantages of different organizations. The PCB also noted that additional resources and capacities would need to be built within the Cosponsors and the Secretariat to enable the implementation of the Strategic Plan.
It recommended that the Secretariat, Cosponsors and other organizations of the United Nations system finalize their contributions to the United Nations System Strategic Plan for review at the next regular meeting of the PCB in 2001.
The PCB expressed its strong appreciation of the progress report on the development of the UN System Strategic Plan on HIV/AIDS for 2001-2005 (UNAIDS/PCB/(10)/00.5) and of the transparency and unprecedented involvement in the process of developing the Strategic Plan, including through access to the web for PCB members.
The PCB noted the importance of providing adequate funding for the evaluation and encouraged interested parties to make additional financial and/or in-kind resources available for this purpose. It also requested interested delegations to be in direct contact with the ESP Chair to discuss their in-kind support of the evaluation process.
The PCB further urged the ESP to solicit the inputs of stakeholders at key stages during the evaluation, as described in the Mandate, including governments, people living with HIV/AIDS and Theme Group Members.
The PCB requested the Secretariat to refine the text of the Framework, incorporating the comments of PCB members and observers, and emphasizing urgency and clarity in language so that it is accessible to the widest possible audience.
The PCB recommended that UNAIDS ensure widespread dissemination of the Framework in a number of languages and encourage its use to guide the further development of strategic processes within regions, priority sectors, and thematic areas in support of country efforts.
