How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The Board serves the Global AIDS Coordinator (“the Coordinator”) in a solely advisory capacity concerning scientific, implementation, and policy issues related to the global response to HIV/AIDS. These issues will be of concern as they influence the priorities and direction of PEPFAR evaluation and research, the content of national and international strategies and implementation, and the role of PEPFAR in the international discourse regarding appropriate and resourced responses. The committee accomplishes is purpose largely through the generation of recommendations.
How is membership balanced?*The Board is composed of 29 members appointed by the Coordinator, representing non-U.S. Government personnel. All Board members are representative members. The membership is representative of the HIV/AIDS community, academia, international experts, partner government representatives, multilateral and bilateral agency representatives, foundations, advocates, and non-governmental organizations.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*Original Estimated Number of Meetings per Year - 1 or 2 face-to-face meetings with teleconferences as needed. In order to keep committee meetings relevant and productive, working groups (subcommittees) have been formed that meet intermittently and on an ad-hoc basis. The ideas and advice generated by the working groups result in increased productivity and clearer recommendations produced by the whole committee during face-to-face meetings.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The committee is necessary to keep PEPFAR programs at the forefront of scientific knowledge. The members of the committee have specific expertise which is relevant and crucial to S/GAC in creating and implementing high-quality programs. The advice received by the Coordinator from the committee in the past fiscal year has assisted PEPFAR by informing next steps on how to swiftly pivot programs to achieve greater impact in response to new HIV normative guidance from the World Health Organization and others.
Why close or partially close meetings?N/A
