The Civil Society Engagement Mechanism for UHC2030 (CSEM) would like to welcome nominations for five new members to the CSEM Advisory Group. One seat will also serve as the Alternative Representative to the UHC2030 Steering Committee representing the Global North.
The CSEM Advisory Group fosters civil society representation in UHC2030. The Advisory Group links the global and national levels, conveys constituency priorities based on national inputs and acts as a technical hub. The group is composed of 18 members, including 12 regular Advisory Group members, 3 CSO representatives and 3 alternate representatives to the UHC2030 Steering Committee.
Within the Advisory Group, the CSEM seeks to represent a balance of gender, expertise, representatives from populations often left behind (such as indigenous and transgender people and/or people with disabilities to name a few), world regions (we currently lack representation from the Middle East, West and Central Africa and the Caribbean), technical focus areas, networks and types of organizations. Members will serve a three-year term.
