The Communities Delegation to the UNITAID board aims for a UNITAID in which people living with and affected by HIV, TB and Malaria and those co-infected with HIV and HCV have access to tests, medicines and products that prevent new infections, that are affordable and meet their needs. The delegation represents the communities and their views at UNITAID Board and Committee level and ensures the voices from the communities positively influence the decisions, priorities, programmes and overall impact of UNITAID, at Board and country level. The delegation members also report back to their respective communities.
The Communities Delegation has a maximum of 30 members (inclusive of the leadership) and will strive to achieve a minimum of 5 Delegates from the HIV community, 5 from malaria, 5 from tuberculosis, 5 from HIV/HCV co-infection and 10 from cross-cutting areas such as market dynamics, pricing, new drug product development, intellectual property etc. Membership of the Communities Delegation is on an individual basis. To apply, the individual must be a person living with HIV, living with or had Tuberculosis; living with, or working with, communities affected by Malaria; or living with or had HIV/HCV co-infection.
