The mission of the Communities Delegation is to bring the voices and issues of people living with HIV, Tuberculosis and Malaria to the deliberations of the Global Fund Board and its committees, and through this, to ensure greater and sustained impact of the Global Fund at the community level.
The Communities Delegation consists of people living with HIV, and affected by Tuberculosis and Malaria. The Communities Delegation commits to achieving geographic and gender balance, and appropriate disease representation. The leadership comprises the Board Member (BM), Alternate Board Member (ABM), and Communications Focal Point (CFP), which coordinate the work of the Communities Delegation.

The final decision-making authority is still retained by the leadership.
