Since May 2020 the Platform for ACT-A Civil Society & Community Representatives (the Platform) – co-led by WACI Health, STOPAIDS and GFAN – has been supporting community and civil society representatives in the platform and advocating for and ensuring that every aspect of the ACT-A has reserved space for communities and civil society to bring their expertise, experience and voices to the table. Currently, there are 47 community and civil society representatives who sit across the 4 “Pillars” (Vaccines/COVAX, Diagnostics, Therapeutics and Health Systems Connector) and two representatives at the Facilitation Council who also participate in “ACT-A Principals” discussions. 

We are now looking for a fourth and fifth community organisation to join WACI Health, STOPAIDS and GFAN to co-lead the platform and ensure communities impacted by COVID-19 are represented and included across all areas of work of the ACT-A. By ‘organisation’ we mean a formally recognized community based organisation, or structured network, coalition, patient-centred group, movement or campaign.
