The Programme Coordinating Board (PCB) is the governing body of UNAIDS. It was established in 1994 through a resolution of the UN Economic and Social Council and made operational in January, 1996. It is made up of 22 voting Member States, 10 Cosponsors and 10 representatives of non-governmental organizations (one delegate and one alternate from 5 regions).
