Review for International Planned Parenthood Federation/Western Hemisphere Region, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I joined this Board, I believe, to strengthen one of the Five A's in its mandate, having worked in the field of HIV/AIDS, nationally, regionally and internationally for over twenty years.
The fact that the organization would seek to strengthen all areas was to me impressive and spoke to the fact that they were serious about meeting their strategic objectives.
Board meetings are serious, well-organized, in depth and are guided by a strong Chair, a knowledgable and interactivePresident and a most able and impressive Executive Director.
Meaningful attention is paid both to overarching goals and objectives but also to meeting the objectives at individual country levels, to include addressing the concerns of volunteers.
The Board represents a wide cross-section of skills including financial skills and the Secretariat has also managed to attract similar breadth of skills and remarkable commitment.

Role:  Board Member & Essentially as a Borad member I helped to guide policy and certainly in the area of HIV/AIDS and sexual reproductive rights which is the area where I have had the most experience.I have also been involved in Lectures and panel discussions at individual co.
