UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board (PCB)
UNAIDS is guided by a Programme Coordinating Board (PCB) with representatives of 22 governments from all geographic regions, the ten UNAIDS cosponsors and five representatives of non-governmental organizations, including associations of people living with HIV. For more information on the UNAIDS PCB and for upcoming meeting dates, visit the UNAIDS PCB website.
In partnership with DFATD and PHAC, ICAD coordinates Canadian consultations before and after each PCB meeting and also distributes the reports of each PCB meeting.
ICAD attends each PCB meeting as an NGO observer where we participate in the deliberations of the PCB raising key points and concerns on issues and participate in the development and delivery of NGO Observer Statements, also known as interventions.

Civil Society Representation
UNAIDS was the first United Nations programme to have civil society formally represented on its governing body. Playing a critical role on the PCB, the NGO Delegation participates in decision-making of the PCB, ensures community representation, and enhances transparency and accountability of PCB decision-making and policy-setting.
