United Nations AIDS Session: Email Input Sought

January 26, 2001

Civil society throughout the world (including nonprofits and businesses, especially in developing countries) has been invited to participate in a United Nations General Assembly Special Session on HIV and AIDS, June 25-27, 2001. For most organizations it will be difficult to participate in person, but they can join a special email discussion forum set up to hear information and views in preparation for the official meeting. The best time to join the email discussion is now, because important preliminary meetings will take place at the end of February.


We have heard unofficially that although the United Nations session itself is in June, the content is likely to be mostly set by then, so the most important times for participation will be earlier, especially before February 26 - March 2, and April 23 - 27, which are informal consultations for government delegates. These meetings will take place in New York, and civil society organizations might or might not be able to address the delegates.

For most organizations, the email discussion group will be the most accessible way to participate.
