The way AfroCAB works reflects the history and current development of the network.

AfroCAB was started by a group of African treatment advocates in 2011. The founders of the group directed its activities supported by a volunteer Coordinator.

Current arrangements

In 2013, HIV i-Base was requested to administer funds for  AfroCAB. The Executive Steering Committee ratified HIV i-Base to act as its secretariat to hold funds and provide administrative services in 2013. AfroCAB is a working network not a legal entity.

The ESC provides strategic direction in consultation with members. Funding for projects is sought by the ESC in consultation with the secretariat. Administration of funds is the responsibility of the secretariat. The Secretariat currently has not sought financial contributions from AfroCAB.

Funds have been secured to employ a coordinator and other support staff from 2014. This is an administrative and developmental role. The coordinator acts as the AfroCAB’s focal point. The coordinator works closely with the Co-Chairs and ESC to action, monitor the work plan and scan the global, regional and country HIV responses.

The Executive Steering Committee is responsible for employing and managing the Coordinator. The secretariat is expected to provide mentoring and technical advice to the Coordinator.
