Established in 2002, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (the Global Fund) is a unique global public/private partnership dedicated to attracting and disbursing resources to prevent and treat HIV and AIDS, tuberculosis (TB) and malaria. To carry out these responsibilities, the Global Fund organized itself from the outset with clear participatory and balanced governance policies and guidelines. The overall system of the Global Fund is led by the Board. The Board is composed of twenty voting members, including representatives of donor and implementing countries, non-governmental organizations, the private sector (including businesses and foundations) and affected communities. Key international development partners equally participate in the Board.

Countries of the region defined as the Eastern Mediterranean Region (EMR) which are eligible to receive Global Fund grants form a constituency and as such have a voting seat on the Board among the ten seats of the implementer bloc. Each constituency has representatives at the Global Fund Board: the Board Member and his/her Alternate, assisted by the Constituency Communications Focal Point (CFP). The principle representative of the constituency serves as the voting member on the Board and is responsible to represent the position of the constituency in the Board Meeting.

The Board Member and Alternate Board Member, with support of Constituency Focal Point are responsible for communicating with the governments, the Country Coordination Mechanisms, institutions and organizations of the constituency they represent, as well as with the Global Fund Secretariat and with their fellow Board Members.
