Governance

The Self-Care Trailblazer Group’s governance structure aims to ensure effective coordination, to bring mutual value to partners without adding unnecessary complexity or bureaucratic burden. Representation and inclusivity are essential for our legitimacy, with broad multi-stakeholder engagement in activities and decision-making processes.

The SCTG operates as both a coalition and a set of related programs. The SCTG’s coalition function is responsible for building a coordinated, diverse, and influential self-care movement that is mobilized around common evidence, goals, and messaging to advance self-care. It also aims to build awareness and support for quality, evidence-based self-care among self-care influencers, policymakers, and potential opposition.

COALLITION

The SCTG operates as both a coalition and a set of related programs. The SCTG’s coalition function is responsible for building a coordinated, diverse, and influential self-care movement that is mobilized around common evidence, goals, and messaging to advance self-care. It also aims to build awareness and support for quality, evidence-based self-care among self-care influencers, policymakers, and potential
opposition.

The coalition functions include individual and organizational members, a Coalition Steering Committee, member working groups, and the SCTG Learning Lab

PROGRAM

The SCTG’s programmatic function aims to ensure self-care policies and financing are instituted at national and subnational levels and demand and that accountability for self-care increase among target communities and constituencies. The programmatic function is carried out by National Self-Care Networks in priority countries and is guided by the Program Advisory Committee.

The Program Advisory Committee (PAC) advises on the SCTG’s programmatic functions in the logic framework. It is made up of donors supporting the SCTG, chairs of the SCTG working groups, and designated leads for each National Self-Care Network.

The PAC meets at least twice yearly with program leads to discuss progress and challenges, and share their perspectives and priorities as they relate to achieving programmatic outcomes.

STRATEGY

The Self-Care Trailblazer Group’s work is guided by a Strategic Plan that outlines its vision, goals, and objectives for the five-year period from January 2021 through December 2025. It reflects a new phase for the SCTG – when evidence, policies, and practices to advance self-care are poised to be increasingly localized and its potential increasingly broadened.

STRUCTURE OF THE SCTG

General Membership

The SCTG comprises a voluntary network representing organizations or individuals with expertise relevant to achieving SCTG goals. The SCTG draws from a broad range of relevant disciplines with various areas of complementary expertise. They include representatives of multilateral and bilateral organizations, private foundations, governments, civil society, inter-governmental and non-governmental organizations and the private sector. Efforts will be made to ensure adequate balance across constituencies, domains, stakeholder representation, links with other relevant initiatives, geographic representation and localized leadership. No financial remuneration is allocated to SCTG members.

The responsibilities of all members are to support, in a harmonized manner, the implementation and monitoring of the SCTG objectives.

Members are expected to:

  • Serve as vocal champions of the collective SCTG effort;
  • Actively contribute their expertise to the SCTG work, in accordance with its overall strategy;
  • Consider how their individual organizations or those in their network can align with SCTG activities and support collaboration and alignment efforts (i.e., inclusion in strategic priorities, funding and programming);
