Executive Director - African Constituency Bureau

The Global Fund to fight HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM) has two constituencies in Africa, namely the Eastern and Southern African (ESA) and West and Central Africa (WCA) constituencies led by Board of Directors. The two constituencies initiated governance reforms in 2012 with a twofold intent: to ensure that constituency priorities are reflected in Global Fund strategy and operational plans; and to strengthen the presence, voice and contributions of the constituencies, through their delegations, in all Global Fund processes. The constituencies adopted a new governance framework that amongst other things introduce the concept of establishing a joint ESA and WCA Bureau to support the Board member’s alternates, committee members and delegates representing countries in these two constituencies. Feasibility assessment was conducted in Ethiopia to see if it would be possible to establish the African Constituency Bureau (ACB) in Addis Ababa and see the pros and cons. Report on key findings of the assessment covering wide range of issues particularly the legal status, business climate, human resources, communications, taxations and other areas such as security, office operations etc. was organized. A consensus was reached to establish the African Constituency Bureau in Ethiopia.
The government of Ethiopia has shown interest for a full support of the establishment of the African Constituency Bureau in Addis Ababa and is willing to provide the Bureau a diplomatic privilege for the necessary grant to and immunity as done to other bilateral and multilateral organizations operating in Ethiopia. The Ethiopian Public Health Association (ETPHA) was recommended and nominated by different stakeholders to come on Board to facilitate and support the establishment of the Bureau in Addis Ababa.
