PPD welcomes new members to increase the momentum of its efforts. Full Membership is open to governments of developing countries and countries in transition who have demonstrated a strong commitment to the ICPD POA. Members contribute US$ 40,000 annually to the organization’s budget and must be prepared to invest human and financial resources in support of their participation in the agenda to fulfill the ICPD and MDG goals.
Member countries appoint a representative to the PPD board, usually the highest-ranking officials in charge of RH matters, i.e. Minister or government leader of similar rank. They also designate an official to function as Partner Country Coordinator (PCC). The PCC is the focal point for developing and implementing South- South Collaborative Programs.
