The Global Review Panel on the Future of the UNAIDS Joint Programme Model has launched a virtual consultation that will run until 10 February. The panel is seeking input on how the Joint Programme can be refined and reinforced to better support countries to end AIDS.
The online consultation is open to everyone to share their views.
The Global Review Panel is tasked with making recommendations for a sustainable and fit-for-purpose UNAIDS. The virtual consultation aims to give voice to a wide range of stakeholders and to encourage meaningful engagement on a number of questions on how the Joint Programme works. It will serve as a primary input for the panel’s report and recommendations.
The discussion forums of the virtual consultation are organized around the three fundamental pillars of the Joint Programme: joint working, governance, and financing and accountability. There is also one forum for general discussion about the added value of UNAIDS.
“I am looking forward to hearing the voice of young people and people living with HIV, especially those in high-burden countries, as they are key to the future of the AIDS response. I want to encourage them, and other populations most vulnerable to and affected by HIV, to share their ideas on how UNAIDS can be strengthened to best support them.”
Awa Coll-Seck, Minister of Health, Senegal, Global Review Panel Co-Chair
“Our virtual consultation provides an opportunity for UNAIDS’ stakeholders to engage in imagining how the UNAIDS Joint Programme model can be refined and reinforced to better support the global AIDS response. We are interested in the perspectives of those UNAIDS serves and works with on a daily basis—including people living with and affected by HIV, civil society, the private sector and national authorities, as well as bilateral partners, global initiatives and the United Nations family itself.”
Lennarth Hjelmåker, Special Ambassador for Global Health, Sweden, Global Review Panel Co-Chair
