Application Deadline: December 11th 2020
The Communities Delegation to the Unitaid Board represents people living with and affected by HIV, TB and Malaria and those co-infected with HIV and HCV, at Unitaid Board and Committee level. The Communities Delegation aims to be transparent, accountable and to prepare communities at grassroots and country level to engage in Unitaid work, working to raise awareness to increase the debate about the Unitaid work areas that directly affect those living with the diseases at country level, especially in the global south.
In 2015 the Communities Delegation reconstituted itself to serve its seat on the Unitaid Board and is hosted by GNP+ based in Cape Town, South Africa. For more information about the Delegation’s mission, vision, goals and charter, please find our Delegation Handbook here.
The Communities Delegation is currently inviting applications for membership from people living with HIV, and affected by Tuberculosis or Malaria for the period 2021-2024. The Delegation would like to recruit additional members from under-represented regions and disease areas as well as members from the Long Covid-19 community who are interested to follow the work of the Unitaid-supported Access to COVID-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator.
The Terms of Reference for the Delegation members can be found in the Delegation Handbook with a description of the selection process. Please note that Delegation membership involves regular analysis and input into board processes and grant proposal reviews.
Community members living with the diseases from Unitaid-implementing countries in Latin America, Asia, Eastern Europe and Central Asia, as well as candidates with expertise in viral hepatitis, IP, malaria and Reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health (RMNCH) are strongly encouraged to apply. You will find an overview of the Unitaid projects and implementing countries here.
Interested community members with the above expertise and criteria are invited to submit the Application Form via email to firstname.lastname@example.org The deadline for submissions is Friday, December 11th 2020, COB.
