Webinar Summary: Communities Delegates Mid-Year Review
Communities Delegations 2017 Mid Year: Webinar Summary and Recording
Last Thursday, 25 May 2017, GNP+ hosted an informational teleconference with community delegates from the UNAIDS PCB, UNITAID and civil society representatives who attended the PEPFAR country operational plan (COP) strategic direction reviews to update us on some of the policy and programmatic challenges and achievements during the first half of 2017 and efforts that are underway to advance critical funding, policy and strategic direction discussions that will impact the future health, safety and wellbeing of people living with HIV globally.
The call, which was attended by over 65 community activists and advocates from around the world, was moderated by Dr. Laurel Sprague, Executive Director of GNP+ and featured panellists Trevor Stratton and Jeffry Acaba, from the UNAIDS PCB NGO delegation, Violeta Ross of the Bolivian Network of People Living with HIV and Board Member of the Communities Delegation to UNITAID, Matthew Kavanagh of Health GAP and Nadia Rafif of MSMGF. Panellist EriKa Castellanos the founder and director of CNE+ Belize, and an alternate member of the Communities Delegation of the Global Fund, was unfortunately unable to make the call.
The panellists discussed key decisions made during the recent PEPFAR COP review processes and anticipated discussions that will take place during the upcoming UNAIDS PCB and UNITAID board meetings
