ABSTRACT The Global Fund is soliciting applications for membership on its Human Rights Reference Group.
The Global Fund is soliciting applications for membership on its Human Rights Reference Group. The Reference Group will advise the Secretariat of the Global Fund on all matters relating to human rights and HIV, TB and malaria.
The Reference Group will consist of 5–8 experts on HIV, TB, malaria and human rights from diverse fields, backgrounds and approaches. The Global Fund wants to ensure that composition of the Reference Group reflects gender balance and geographical diversity.
Members of the Reference Group will not be compensated for their service but travel and per diems related to meetings of the group will be covered. The Global Fund estimates that membership on the Reference Group will involved a time commitment of 10-15 hours per month.
According to a post by Meg Davis, Senior Specialist for Human Rights, Global Fund Secretariat, on 20 February on the listserv of the International Treatment Preparedness Coalition, interested persons should send a one-to-two page cover letter summarising their qualifications, plus a one-to-two page resume, and the names and contact details for two references to: email@example.com. Deadline for applications is 1 March, and the first teleconference will probably take place the week of 11 March.
