New identity and website for the NGO Delegation to the UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board
Winnie Byanyima launches NGO Delegation’s renewed website, logo and visual identity
The NGO Delegation proudly presents its new visual identity and renewed website (https://unaidspcbngo.org/). At the end of the 52nd PCB meeting UNAIDS Executive Director Winnie Byanyima officially launched our new website and congratulated our delegates with this milestone that aimes to improve our communication with our constituencies.
At the presentation, Winnie Byanyima said: “As the NGO delegation launches its new website, I would like to congratulate you for your unique role on UNAIDS’ Programme Coordinating Board. Your powerful voices ensure that the needs, concerns, and perspectives of people living with and affected by HIV from across the globe are included in global policies to end AIDS. UNAIDS is proud to stand with you.”
Our communication working group wanted to reshape the previous website into a platform that offers civil society organisations more ways to engage with the NGO Delegation and its members. The searchability of documents the NGO Delegation has produced since it was established as integral part of the Programme Coordinating Board of UNAIDS back in 1994 was in need of a major upgrade.
Midnight Poonkasetwattana, member of the communication working group, sums up the goal of the NGO Delegation: “Our working group worked hard to ensure that new NGO Delegation website is intuitive and easy to navigate. Our constituents can find the most relevant information needed for their advocacy work and are kept up to date on what we’re doing and where they can contribute to. We’re also proud of our new visual identity which is bold and clearly puts our mission on HIV/AIDS.”
The communication working group and CCF worked closely together with Carsten Lund Thomsen, the designer of the new NGO Delegation logo and the website: “When the NGO Delegation approached me to design a new logo, identity, and website, I aimed to create a fresh and memorable identity that could elevate them to a new level of respect and professionalism in their important work for the UNAIDS PCB. My intention was to create a colourful and inclusive space, like a safe house, for the delegates to carry out their tasks.”
Carsten highlighted the changes in structure of the website: “I chose to develop a more traditionally structured website as it needs to serve as an important communication tool, ensuring easy access to the documents they produce. Collaborating with the CCF and the NGO Delegates has been really inspiring, and the feedback they provided during the design process has motivated me to deliver better work. I am grateful to the CCF and the delegates for entrusting me with this responsibility, and I wish them the best of luck in their work for the UNAIDS PCB.”
Next to a new website and visual identity CCF also changed its ways of communication, creating a better link between CCF and the internet domain of the NGO Delegation. The first thing you might already have noticed of this change, is that BJ and I are using new email addresses.
CCF would appreciate it if you could please no longer use our old email addresses and put our new addresses in your contact lists:
As with many major digital changes, not all the data from our old website has yet been transferred to the new platform. This will happen during the month of August, please be patient if you’re looking for that one NGO Report in Russian from 2010. It will come online albeit a little later than we hoped.
Last but not least, we’re excited that you can now also get in touch with individual delegates via our new website. And of course you can also send an email to [email protected] for all general information.
If you have any feedback or suggestions for our new website, do not hesitate to let us know.
