[afro-nets] Civil Society Review Progress On UNGASS and MDGs

Cross-posted from: ZAN Alert <info@zan.co.zw>

* Thirty years into the HIV and AIDS pandemic, Civil Society converges in New 
York today, the 8th April 2011  to review progress made towards achieving 
Universal Access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support as well as  the 
Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 6.  In 2006, the international community 
committed to a historic political declaration, at the United Nations, to scale 
up the AIDS response toward Universal Access to HIV prevention, treatment, care 
and support by 2010. The foundation of this declaration was the 2001 
Declaration on HIV and AIDS (UNGASS). Both of these declarations were historic 
mobilizations to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), especially 
goal 6 which seeks to halt and reverse the spread of HIV by 2015[1]

Zimbabwe AIDS Network (ZAN) in collaboration with a core group of  Civil 
Society representative of  all sectors –(ASOs, CBOs, Networks and Organizations 
of PLHIV, Youth representatives, Gender Equality focused and Women's 
organizations,  Media and Information organizations and People living with 
disability) have prepared a Position Paper to contribute to the discussions 
being held today.   Ultimately the outcome of today’s deliberations will feed 
into the United Nations General Assembly High Level Meeting on AIDS set to take 
place between  the 8th–10th June 2011 in New York.
