The 28th Meeting of the UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board (PCB) will meet in Geneva from 21-23 June.

UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibé will present his progress report on 21 June followed by a presentation of the Committee of Cosponsoring Organizations (CCO) report highlighting the joint and specific Cosponsors’ activities during the previous twelve months. The report will be presented by Mr Yury Fedotov, Executive Director of UNODC, on behalf of the current CCO Chair Tony Lake, Executive Director of UNICEF.

The main item at this meeting is the Unified Budget, Results and Accountability Framework (UBRAF) 2012-2015, which the Board will consider for endorsement. As a follow up from the previous PCB meeting that took place in December 2010, the Board will receive a report on the outcomes of the thematic segment on “Food and nutrition security and HIV: how to ensure food and nutrition security are integral parts of HIV programming”, and their integration into the work of the Joint Programme. The Board will also receive a progress report on the implementation of the Agenda for Accelerated Action on Women and Girls by country.
