The Consultative Forum

consultative forum


Uniting to Combat Neglected Tropical Diseases (Uniting) is a global advocacy organisation that exists to end neglected tropical diseases by mobilising resources - in support of  World Health Organization (WHO) and  Sustainable Development Goals in reaching the goals to control, eliminate or eradicate neglected tropical diseases (NTDs).

Role and Composition of the Consultative Forum 

The Consultative Forum serves to expand the representation of the broader Uniting Partner Network; providing critical input to the Uniting Board, supporting dissemination of information from the Board to the broader Partner Network and helping to ensure relevance of Uniting’s goals and objectives to the NTD community. Input from the Consultative Forum may support decision-making by the Board, Secretariat and Working Groups, but the Consultative Forum is not a decision-making body in and of itself. 

How to get involved

The Consultative Forum brings together voices from across our Partner Network to aid decision making and to ensure that the voices of our community are heard and considered. The Consultative Forum has been established to provide critical advice to the Board, the Secretariat and any working groups that are set up.

Whilst the Forum already has a broad range of skills and experience, there is room for additional members.
