Posted on: March 4 2011, 02:54 pm

Dear Friends and Collegues,

Please see below information on  how to increase women's participation to the  High Level Meeting taking place in New York in June.  There is a brief survey on line for you to complete this is a crucial opportunity to put women's issues on the global agenda. Too many people think that because in the UK  we have access to treatment things are fine for us. Please take the time to  complete survey  the deadline is next week 13th March so quite soon.

Thanks for your support and please distribute this  to your networks.

Building women’s global meaningful participation in the High Level Meeting (HLM) on HIV and AIDS

Dear Friends

The High Level Meeting on HIV and AIDS that takes place in June this year will review achievements made against the commitments of the United Nations General Assembly Special Session on HIV/AIDS Declaration of Commitment of 2001, and the Political Declaration of 2006. It will determine the priority agenda for work on HIV and AIDS over the next five years, in particular as we work towards the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Multiple processes are underway to ensure broad stakeholder engagement and representation in the outcomes of the Meeting. These include regional civil society consultations and pre-meetings. (http://www.icaso.org/ungass.html)
 

The ATHENA Network and the Global Coalition on Women and AIDS (GCWA) are running a virtual survey in order to ensure the broadest possible engagement and representation of women (and girls wherever possible) in the processes leading up to the HLM – especially women living with and affected by HIV, and other key populations of women who often lack platforms for priority issues to be raised and heard.

 

This survey will be sent via various electronic social media to women in all regions, in English, French, Spanish, Russian, and Arabic. From the responses we receive, we are seeking to identify regional messages, which can be fed into the regional consultations being held over the next two months, and consolidated into 3 to 4 key global asks to feed into the HLM outcome document by the beginning of April. Beyond the HLM process, we hope that the findings that the survey produces will be useful at the national, regional, and international advocacy levels. We will be producing regional summaries of the findings.

 

WE WOULD BE SO GLAD IF YOU WOULD TAKE PART IN THIS GLOBAL SURVEY - and share it with your woman colleagues.

 

The survey takes about 20 - 30 minutes to complete in full, but there is the option of only completing the first 2 parts which can be done in 5 minutes

Deadline: Sunday 13th March

 

We are also attaching an email version - please only use this in the event that you do not have internet access, and return completed questionnaires to virtual.consultation2011@gmail.com by Sunday 13th March 2011

We look forward to hearing from you!

   

    Warmly

    Tyler Crone, Claudia Ahumada, Luisa Orza, Alice Welbourn
