  Call for new members:
  Communities Delegation to Unitaid Board

*Application deadline extended: January 15th 202*

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


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 <https://unitaid.org/covid-19/act-accelerator/#en>.

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 <https://unitaid.org/our-projects/#en>.

Interested community members with the above expertise and criteria are 
invited to submit the Application Form 
<https://gnpplus.net/opportunities/call-for-new-membership-communities-delegation-to-unitaid-board/> via 
email to wvandevelde at gnpplus.net <mailto:wvandevelde at gnpplus.net>. The 
deadline for submissions is Friday, January 15th 2021, COB.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me should you require any further 
information.

Best Regards,

Wim Vandevelde
Liaison Officer, Communities Delegation to Unitaid Board
