October 21, 2013

Devex profiles Kate Thomson, "an HIV-positive individual who used to work for the [Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria] back in its early days as manager of civil society relations," noting she is returning to the organization "to lead a group of specialists whose role is to ensure Global Fund grants 'support and expand gender equality, human rights, and [the] scaling up of community-led services and policy dialogue,'" according to Ibon Villalebeitia, a spokesperson for the fund. "The group is called the Critical Enablers and Civil Society hub," according to the news service. "To take on the role, Thomson will be temporarily leaving her position as chief of community mobilizations at UNAIDS," Devex writes, and discusses Thomson's views of society engagement in development (Ravelo, 10/18).
