The Advisory Committee of Friends Europe

The mission of the Advisory Committee is to inform and advise the Governing Board on the status, evolution and perspectives of global health, with a focus on the fight against AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria in their scientific, developmental, political, policy, or funding dimensions.

The Committee gathers renowned European experts whose views on global health, or on international cooperation and development will contribute to enrich the reflection of the organisation at a European level, and to help elaborate its advocacy strategy.
