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.
