In particular, it will:

  • propose annual work-plans and budgets for the initiative,
  • propose other strategic documents,
  • propose revisions of the Terms of Reference of the governance of the initiative,
  • propose revisions of the Strategic Agenda for the initiative every 2 years.

  • decide on working groups or task forces on specific topics, guide and review their activities,
  • engage and communicate with potential partners and with stakeholders.

The SC will guide the Secretariat and review its activities.


The Steering Committee is composed of 5 colleges:

  • Donors Committee: 1 representative nominated by the Donors Committee.
  • Civil Society College: 3 representatives from non-profit NGOs.

The Secretary General and the Chair of the SAB sit on the Steering Committee as observers.
A balance between regions, genders and between human, animal and environmental health dimensions will be sought when organizing the SC elections.
