An independent review of the Key Correspondents Programme took place last year that made a number of recommendations which we have been working to address with the help of a core group of Key Correspondents.
A KC survey carried out as part of this review revealed widespread support for an agreement outlining the roles and responsibilities of both Key Correspondents and the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, a defined editorial policy, and a more formal membership process that is reviewed on an annual basis and includes the use of ID cards.
To bring in these changes we are asking all existing KCs who would like to continue being part of the programme to apply using the new criteria. Places are limited and in order to be considered you will need to submit a written expression of interest.
The deadline for applying is Monday, April 1 2013 23.59 GMT. All applicants will be notified during the week of April 8. If unsuccessful in the first instance there will be a further opportunity to apply in September 2013.
