Call for Case Study Submissions: Undetectable = Untransmittable NGO Delegation Report to the UNAIDS PCB



Dear Colleagues,

The NGO Delegation to the UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board (PCB) produces an annual NGO report that is presented during one of the biannual PCB meetings. The NGO Delegation decides by consensus on the topic of the report. The highest priority is given to a topic that is relevant and requires urgent action at the global level.

This year, the NGO report will focus on U=U: Undetectable = Untransmittable and will be presented at the 51stmeeting of the UNAIDS PCB in December 2022. The working title for the report is “U=U: A foundational, community-led, global HIV/AIDS health equity strategy”. We are seeking examples of good practices at country, regional and global levels where community-led U=U has demonstrated increased and more equitable access to and improved uptake in treatment and care services within diverse communities across low, middle and high-income settings. Examples could include:

  • Documented evidence of effective and innovative U=U interventions, such as:
    • Examples of community-driven collaboratives (e.g., involving multiple stakeholders including community, civil society, health care providers, researchers, the private sector and government)
    • Examples of U=U initiatives that work with other sectors across the SDGs to address the socioeconomic and structural drivers of HIV
    • Address the gender disparities in risk of HIV and access to prevention, treatment, and care
    • Others
  • Examples and documented evidence of how U=U has contributed to facility-based and community health systems strengthening:
    • result in improved access to and retention in treatment and care
    • result in increased demand for and access to information, technology, treatment and care for people living with HIV in diverse and marginalized communities
    • HIV care cascade: community case finding with early case detection and linkage and retention in care
    • work in other sectors to reduce the impact of HIV e.g., education, comprehensive sexuality education, food security, etc.
    • address the legal environment for HIV to reduce the barriers to prevention, treatment and care
    • protect and promote human rights, the right to health and universal health coverage
    • Others
  • Effective U=U advocacy strategies and information, education and communication campaigns that:
    • address stigma and discrimination as barriers to accessing diagnosis, treatment and care
    • meaningful community and civil society engagement and advocacy
    • address the legal environment for HIV to reduce the barriers to prevention, treatment and care
    • Others

The submissions must be made using the online submission form by COB Friday August 15, 2022.
