Javier Hourcade Bellocq

Javier started working on HIV in 1988 in Buenos Aires, Argentina and is a founding member of the Argentinean and Latin American PLWH Network. As many of you who know him well, Javier has served on my international and regional boards, committees and working groups including GNP+, the UNAIDS Program Coordinating Board and the Global Fund Board as well as being a staff member at the International HIV/AIDS Alliance for 13 years. Currently, Javier serves as the Civil Society Representative in the GFATM LAC Board Delegation, and he is the Chair of the Global Network of People living with HIV. Javier is looking forward to the work of CSSN because the realities of rushed transitions and poor sustainability planning hits civil society hardest and he believes that the work of CSSN to translate the concerns of civil society and to protect community organizations and their ability to continue to do their work is critical.
