The Team

The Team

The daily work of GNP+ happens in our offices in Amsterdam and Cape Town. With a total of 9 staff members we manage GNP+ programmes, support community networks and evidence gathering tools, and formulate joint advocacy with other stakeholders.

Much of our work is not done at our desks, however, but with the policy and decision makers. You will meet GNP+ representatives – staff as well as board members – at UN, Global Fund or PEPFAR meetings in Geneva, Cape Town, DC and New York, and in many other places.

GNP+ staff members are a diverse group of people, from different walks of life, living with HIV, affected by HIV, and identifying themselves with various key populations.
