Our Advisory Board

About

The AHBN advisory board is there to provide strategic guidance and advice on policies and programmes AHBN is running. AHBN Activities are overseen by the members of the advisory board who give non-binding advice over the strategic direction AHBN is taking.

The Advisory Board meets once a year. It contains members from various different sectors and seniority levels in order to ensure the voices of African CSOs are recognised. The Advisory Board is chaired by Julius Mukunda, the Coordinator of CSBAG, a prominent budget advocacy organisation in Uganda.
