community based individuals and organizations, because we are on the ground,we know what works and what does not, we accumulated years of experienceliving with the diseases to the point that we have, sometimes, better expertisethan the experts themselves, this is why consultants come to our countries andask us what to do for HIV, TB and Malaria. We want this knowledge to serveUNITAID. We take the medications that UNITAID pays for.We want to stress the importance of having and independent group of expertsthat are conscious of UNITAID conflict of interest policy, this is essential for our accountability as a leading global entity in HIV, TB and malaria.The Communities Delegation would like to be involved in the nomination of thePRC membersin whatever format it comes to be.
