CALL FOR MEMBERSHIP: COMMUNITIES DELEGATION TO UNITAID BOARD
Community members from UNITAID implementing countries in Asia, Eastern Europe and Central Asia (UNITAID works in 12 EECA countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina Bulgaria, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Romania, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan), as well as candidates with expertise in HIV/HCV co-infection and IP are encouraged to apply.
Application Deadline: 17th June 2016
The Communities Delegation aims to be transparent, accountable and to prepare communities at grass roots 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.
During 2015, the Communities Delegation reconstituted itself to serve its seat on the UNITAID Board and is currently 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.
After a first recruitment phase, the Communities Delegation would now like to recruit additional members from under-represented regions and disease areas and hereby issues a new open call soliciting applications. The Terms of Reference for the Delegation members can be found on page 12 of the Delegation Handbook with a description of the selection process as well as the selection criteria, desired profile, responsibilities and key performance indicators of the members.
The role is voluntary and no payment should be expected. Members of the Communities Delegation serve a three-year term. Dependent on performance- based assessment, a two-year extension of this term may be granted by the leadership. However, at the end of the three year term, at least 50% of delegation members should be rotated off.
You will find an overview of the UNITAID implementing countries, as well as data on distribution of UNITAID investments in products, here.
Interested community members are now invited to submit an Expression of Interest via email to email@example.com. Applicants will receive a form to collect contact details, expertise, as well as the answers to three questions about UNITAID, the role of the Communities Delegation and for information about priorities in one of the disease areas. Deadline for submissions is Friday June 17th COB.
Please respond to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining the Delegation.

Services for migrants and refugees from Ukraine – HIV/TB care with a focus on key populations
Due to the increasing flows of refugees from Ukraine because of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the EECA Regional Platform created a spreadsheet to fill contacts details of face-to-face and online services for refugees and migrants (with a focus on HIV/TB care and key population groups).
If you provide such services or know verified providers, please fill out the spreadsheet at your earliest convenience, and, please, update it as more verified information is available. These can be services for national citizens if they are also accessible to international migrants and refugees.
