UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board meeting opens
13 December 2011
UNAIDS governing body, the Programme Coordinating Board (PCB) is holding its 29th Board meeting from 13-15 December in Geneva.
In the opening session, UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibé addressed the Board giving an overview of progress made in the last six months by UNAIDS. In his report, Mr Sidibé also outlined the organizational changes that the Joint Programme will undertake in order to increase efficiency in helping countries achieve the goals set for 2015.
This year’s thematic segment will take place on the last day of the meeting and will focus on HIV and enabling legal environments as it was agreed at the 26th meeting of the Board. This session will allow for more in-depth understanding, consideration and discussion of the legal environment relevant to HIV, its three components (law, law enforcement and access to justice) and their impact on national HIV responses.
The board will also be informed about the progress made in the implementation of the Global Plan towards the elimination of new HIV infections among children by 2015 and keeping their mothers alive.
