Advisory Group nomination and selection (open seats)
Following the review in 2019, it has been agreed that the partnership will:
- Elevate the prioritization and inclusion of NTDs in the global health agenda using the partnership’s convening power, collaborative voice and harmonized messages.
- Advocate for maintained and increased donor and endemic country resource commitments for NTDs.
- Foster collective action around critical challenges and opportunities, when the partnership is uniquely positioned to do so.
To support these goals we are establishing a new Advisory Group. The group will represent Uniting’s Partner Network and provide critical advice to the Board, Secretariat and any working groups that are established. The Advisory Group will support effective decision-making and ensure that the views of our partnership members are captured and shared.
The group will be comprised of approximately 20-30 members, with a mix of seats filled by people who represent different partnership constituencies. Individuals will be sought to represent the NTD NGO Network, NTD donors, pharmaceutical companies, research organizations, the WHO regions, endemic countries and those working on NTD advocacy. Please email email@example.com for more on the process to fill the constituency seats.
There will also be open seats, which you can apply to via the link below.
We will need willing volunteers who are recognized as experts in their fields and who have the capacity and knowledge to help shape the overall strategic direction of the partnership. The Advisory Group will be convened virtually or in person annually. Outside of this, the expertise of Advisory Group members will be drawn upon as required –either individually or in groups around different projects and issues. Informal collaboration with board members, the Secretariat or working groups will take place to fulfil the role and responsibility of the Advisory Group.
Advisory Group nominations for open seats should be received by Friday, August 2nd.
Please email your nomination, or any questions, to firstname.lastname@example.org
