Membership Task Force takes first steps

1st June 2007

The first Membership Task Force teleconference took place on June 25 with the aim of reviewing its draft scope of work (SOW) and agreeing on next steps. The Task Force aims to submit a set of recommendations on the composition and structure of Coalition membership, along with an operational plan to implement these recommendations. Defining membership will entail three stages-a preliminary landscape review, consolidation of findings, and formulation of recommendations for submission to the Executive Committee by the end of August.

Over the coming month, consultant David Johnson of HLSP will interview Task Force members and others whose constituencies are not represented (e.g., developing-country governments and pharmaceutical companies) and prepare a discussion paper that the Task Force will review in London during the week of August 13.
