WHO WE ARE

The Communities Living with HIV and affected by Tuberculosis and Malaria Delegation (Communities Delegation) has a voting seat on the Board of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Global Fund).

The mission of the Communities Delegation is to bring the voices and issues of people living with HIV and AIDS, and affected by Tuberculosis and Malaria to the deliberations of the Global Fund Board and its committees, and through this, to ensure greater and sustained impact of the Global Fund at the community level.

The Communities Delegation consists of people living with HIV, and affected by Tuberculosis and malaria, and commits to achieving geographic and gender balance, an appropriate disease representation. The leadership comprises the Board Member (BM), Alternate Board Member (ABM), and Communications Focal Point (CFP), which coordinate the work of the Communities Delegation. The leadership formally represent the Delegation to the Global Fund Board.

The Communities Delegation has a maximum of 40 members (inclusive of the leadership) and will strive to achieve a minimum of 30% membership from malaria and tuberculosis communities. Membership of the Communities Delegation is on an individual basis, and recruitment for new members is on an annual basis.
