DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 3 OCTOBER: NGO Delegation Recruitment (2022 to 2023)

The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV and AIDS (UNAIDS) was the first United Nations 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. The NGO Delegation has two representatives per UN region (one main delegate and one alternate delegate). The PCB holds the Joint Programme accountable and ensures that the needs of communities affected by the HIV response are addressed in strategy and programming.

The UNAIDS PCB is the key global forum for HIV and AIDS policy, and the NGO Delegation is integral to the active inclusion of community voices and representation of communities and civil society, including people living with HIV. Being a member of the PCB presents a unique opportunity for committed activists and advocates to make a difference in HIV and AIDS policy development and monitoring, and evaluation in their respective regions.

The NGO Delegation to the UNAIDS PCB has vacancies for a full two-year term (2022 - 2023) and is now recruiting for:

  • 1 Delegate for Africa (apply)
  • 1 Delegate for Asia and the Pacific (apply)
  • 2 Delegates for Europe (apply)
  • 2 Delegates for North America (apply)

The NGO Delegation upholds the principle of community engagement and ownership of the response. Applications from people living with HIV, gay men and men who have sex with men, sex workers, people who use drugs, transgender people, young people, women living with/affected by HIV, and other key populations are strongly encouraged.

The NGO Delegation is keenly aware of the importance of having balanced representation from each region. Therefore, geographic region and representation from various key populations or constituencies will factor in the decision-making processes. In addition, previous NGO Delegates and their organizations may not serve more than one term consecutively, and can only serve for a maximum of two terms total.

IMPORTANT: Please read the NGO Delegation’s terms of reference, mission/vision/principles, as well as the call for applications.

DEADLINE: Sunday, 3 October 2021, 23:59 GMT

Survey for our 2021 NGO Report "Left Out: The HIV Community & Societal Enablers in the HIV Response"

This online survey will provide information, including quotes/anecdotes and data, for the annual report of the NGO Delegation to the UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board (PCB). The report will be titled Left Out: The HIV Community & Societal Enablers in the HIV Response and it will be presented at the 49th meeting of the UNAIDS PCB in December 2021. Your opinions and ideas provided through this survey will help the NGO Delegation produce a report that will dispel doubts about the centrality of societal interventions in the HIV response for Key Populations (KP) and other vulnerable groups such as women and girls, adolescents and young people (AYP), and migrants. The report will define societal enablers and explore in-depth the importance of four societal enablers in particular - education, employment, healthcare, and laws and policies. It will argue the case that societal enablers can significantly improve access to HIV prevention, treatment, and care for KP and other vulnerable groups. Below are examples of societal enablers:

  • Education: Inclusion of comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) in school and university curriculums to educate AYP on human rights, sexuality, gender equality, and sexual and reproductive health.
  • Employment: Government training programs for KP and other vulnerable groups that increase their marketable skills and knowledge.
  • Healthcare: KP community-led HIV prevention, testing, and treatment services.
  • Laws and policies: Anti-discrimination laws that cover HIV status, drug use, gender identity, sexual orientation, immigration status, and/or other categories.
This survey will close on 29 September 2021.
