15th PCB Meeting, June 2004
The 15th Meeting of the Programme Coordinating Board. Geneva, Switzerland 23-24 June 2004
- Provisional agenda item 2: coordination and harmonization (the 'Three Ones') (en | fr)
The PCB is asked to endorse the principles for concerted country action against AIDS contained in the “three ones” agreement reached at the donor meeting in April 2004 in Washington DC. It is also asked to endorse specific action by UNAIDS to realize application of the ‘three ones’ at country level, including continuing action in the next biennium’s Unified Budget and Workplan.
- Provisional agenda item 6: Cosponsorship (en | fr)
The increasing interest of UN-system organizations to become UNAIDS Cosponsors has prompted the Committee of Cosponsoring Organizations (CCO) to consider in more detail the implications of a larger, more diverse UNAIDS partnership. The founding ECOSOC resolution (1994/24 of 26 July 1994) does not address this issue, nor has the issue been raised at past PCB meetings, although both ECOSOC and the PCB have been kept informed as new Cosponsors have been admitted. UNAIDS is thus seeking the advice of the PCB on expanding Cosponsorship, based upon decisions and recommendations made by the CCO in March 2004.
- Provisional agenda item 8.3: update on the Global Coalition on Women and AIDS (en | fr)
The PCB is requested to review the attached note and extend its support for the Global Coalition on Women and AIDS.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Global Fund) was signed by the Executive Directors of both organizations on 4 August 2003.

- Provisional agenda item 3: report by the Chairperson of the Committee of Cosponsoring Organizations (CCO) (en | fr)
- Provisional agenda item 5: possible establishment of a PCB Bureau (en | fr)
The 14th PCB meeting, held in Geneva in June 2003, through Recommendation 34, requested that: “The Secretariat, in consultation with the Chair and Vice-Chair of the PCB, to propose for decision the mandate, roles, functions and membership of a bureau, if it is desirable to establish [one], at the next PCB meeting.” The intent of establishing a Bureau is to maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of the PCB.
- Provisional agenda item 8.1: update on implementation of the UNGASS Declaration of Commitment (en | fr)
This report provides an update on progress in implementing the Declaration of Commitment on HIV/AIDS, signed by 189 Member States at the June 2001 UNGASS, with particular attention to 2005 targets.

UNAIDS reported data from 103 countries on four categories of indicators.
- Provisional agenda item 1.4: Report of the Executive Director: overview and challenges (en | fr)
The Future Directions of UNAIDS, endorsed by the PCB in December 2002, provided the template against which the Programme could refocus its efforts in relation to the new challenges on AIDS of the first decade of the twenty-first century. In the eighteen months since, a significant retooling of our efforts has taken place. This renewed agenda for action places UNAIDS at the forefront of meeting the global AIDS challenge in 2004-2005.
- United Nations system strategic plan for HIV/AIDS, 2001-2005 mid-term performance report, 2001-2003 (en | fr)
