The International HIV/AIDS Alliance is a network of over 30 national, independent, locally governed and managed linking organizations supporting communities in developing countries to reduce the spread of HIV and to meet the challenges of AIDS, particularly among the most vulnerable and marginalised populations. The Alliance’s mission is to support communities to play a full and effective role in the AIDS response. Our vision is a world in which people do not die of AIDS. Since 1994, the Alliance and its partners have supported over 3,000 projects, in over 40 countries, reaching millions of people.
We are recruiting trustees for our UK-based charity, which serves as the international secretariat, to lead the Alliance through its ambitious programme to help curb the epidemic and ensure universal access to comprehensive HIV services.
We are looking for individuals with an interest in international development issues and HIV/AIDS and a strong belief in the values of the Alliance, especially in supporting communities and local NGOs in developing countries to build their capacity and skills to ensure sustainable development. Individuals do not need to be based in the UK to be considered.
We are specifically seeking individuals with high level governance or management experience in and connections with the private sector to contribute this particular expertise to the Alliance’s leadership and approach.
An in-depth knowledge and experience of one or more of the following areas is essential:
• Commercial and private sectors
• Public/private partnerships including income generation
Good communication skills in English are also essential. Personal experience of the impact of HIV/AIDS is desirable.
These are unpaid appointments, but expenses to twice-yearly Board meetings in Brighton (UK) and in developing countries will be reimbursed. Trustees are appointed for an initial term of three years, but may be re-appointed for two further terms.
