*CALL FOR NEW MEMBERSHIP:*

*COMMUNITIES DELEGATION TO UNITAID BOARD*

*Application Deadline:**March 9^th 2018*


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 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.

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 
<http://www.gnpplus.net/resources/unitaid-communities-delegation-handbook/>.

The Communities Delegation would 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 in the Delegation Handbook with a 
description of the selection process as well as the criteria and desired 
profile of the members. 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 implementing countries here 
<http://www.unitaid.eu/en/what/countries>.

Interested community members with the above expertise and criteria are 
invited to submit an Expression of Interest via email to 
wvandevelde at gnpplus.net <mailto:wvandevelde at gnpplus.net>. 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 March 9th COB.

Please respond to my email wvandevelde at gnpplus.net

Delegation. Thank you!
