The Communications Facility (CF) has worked on behalf of the NGO Delegation since 2008 to strengthen the NGO participation and support effectiveness of NGO country-level voices in the UNAIDS Programming Coordinating Board (PCB).
The CF provides the delegation with independent support, while working in collaboration with the UNAIDS Secretariat. Its main goals are to support the internal management of the Delegation and to help facilitate its communication and consultation with wider civil society to ensure that the PCB NGO delegation is appropriately nominated and equipped to represent civil society issues to the PCB.
The CF is hosted by different NGOs for 2-year terms. From 2008-2010, it was hosted by the World AIDS Campaign in Amsterdam, Netherlands; from 2010-2012, it was hosted by ICASO in Toronto, Canada.
