DEADLINE EXTENDED TO OCT 21: NGO Delegation recruitment (Europe)

The NGO Delegation to the UNAIDS PCB has three vacancies for a two year term (2020 - 2021).

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 the UNAIDS, and an NGO Delegation of 10 civil society representatives, 2 per UN region (1 main delegate and 1 alternate delegate), which hold the Joint Programme accountable and ensure 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 effective inclusion of community voices, and representation of communities and civil society, including people living with HIV. This presents a unique opportunity for committed activists and advocates to make a difference in HIV and AIDS policy implementation in their respective regions.

The NGO Delegation to the UNAIDS PCB has three vacancies for a two-year term (2020-2021) and is now recruiting for:

  • 1 Delegate for Europe (apply)
  • 2 Delegates for Latin America and the Caribbean (Deadline - October 14, 2019)

The NGO Delegation upholds the principle of greater involvement of people living with HIV and key populations. Applications from young people, women living with/affected by HIV, trans persons, and other key populations are strongly encouraged.

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

Call for Case Studies for the 45th PCB Thematic Segment on “Reducing the impact of AIDS on children and youth”



Deadline: October 21, 2019 COB, Geneva

The thematic segment provides an opportunity to:

  • Analyse the impact of AIDS on children, adolescents and youth through the life course from childhood to adulthood by age range [0-4] [5-9] [10-14] [15-24].
  • Identify countries and specific thematic areas where notable successes/progress in HIV-related outcomes for children, adolescents, and youth have been achieved and discuss the key factors that led to those successes.
  • Identify the key priority actions that will allow countries, with different epidemiological contexts, to scale-up of rights-based HIV prevention, treatment and care and programmes and to protect HIV-related human rights by age group, location and population specificities.

UNAIDS is seeking examples of good practices of reducing the impact of AIDS on children and youth to inform the thematic segment background note and the discussions during the segment. Some submissions may also be selected to be presented during the Thematic Day on 12 December 2019.

Specifically, UNAIDS is seeking examples of policies, programmes and other actions in the following areas:

  1. Data driven programmes and initiatives to identify where new HIV infections are occurring and to optimize PMTCT delivery and maternal and infant services to address gaps.
  2. Examples of scaling up and expanding access to timely diagnosis and treatment for children living with HIV.
  3. Examples of developing, introducing and actively scaling up better treatment options for HIV and HIV-associated infections across the lifecycle.
  4. Successful programmes to retain children, adolescents and youth, including adolescents and youth in key populations and adolescent girls and young women in care and to achieve viral suppression.
  5. Successful HIV prevention programmes for adolescents and youth, including for adolescents and youth in key populations and for adolescent girls and young women.
  6. Examples of programmes to empower and engage adolescents and youth in the HIV response as beneficiaries, partners and leaders.
  7. Programmes that address the root factors driving the vulnerability of young key populations as well as adolescent girls and young women to HIV (gender inequality, early marriage, gender-based violence, age of consent laws, criminalization of key populations, legal impediments to access to harm reduction, etc.).

Submissions are accepted in English and French. All the submissions received before the deadline of Monday, 21 October 2019 will be compiled in a document on good practices which will be posted on the UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board website.

The submissions must be made through the electronic submission form here.
