Board Decisions Regarding Governance
- "Communities" vote
The "Communities" board delegation, which represents people living with the three diseases, was granted the vote. Previously, that delegation participated in all board discussions but did not have a vote. The Communities delegation joins eighteen other voting board delegations, consisting of seven developing country governments, seven developed country governments, and four civil society delegations (representing developing country NGOs, developed country NGOs, private sector, and private foundations). Delegations that continue not to have a vote are UNAIDS, WHO, the World Bank, and a representative of Switzerland.
