International Treatment Preparedness Coalition Global
ITPC is a global activist network (GAN) fighting for universal access to treatment. As an issue-based organization based in Johannesburg, South Africa, ITPC uses HIV as an entry point to the right to health and partners with affected communities across the world to address treatment access issues for diseases including diabetes, hepatitis C and hypertension. Our GAN is a dynamic movement that invites and fosters the participation and leadership of hundreds of treatment activists through sharing of information and collaborative policy work, monitoring,and advocacy. Our operational hub, in Johannesburg, South Africa, supports a small global team to carry out our global mandate to ensure that everyone in need of treatment can get it.
The International Treatment Preparedness Coalition Global (ITPC) is seeking to fill between one and three open seats on its Global Board.
From 2021-2023, ITPC is committed to renewing its work in four core areas:

- Educating people to demand the health services they need
- Increasing the availability and affordability of diagnostics and medicines, with particular focus on life-saving medicines for HIV, tuberculosis and viral hepatitis
- Holding governments, donors, and other authorities accountable to globally recognized standards for human rights and public health
