A survey on HIV in the post-2015 development agenda survey has been initiated by International Civil Society Support (ICSS), the STOP AIDS Alliance (SAA), the International Council of AIDS Service Organizations (ICASO) and UNAIDS, in collaboration with NSWP, the Global Forum on MSM & HIV (MSMGF), INPUD, GATE, HYLF, ICW and GNP+. Responses will be summarized and used to inform the development of a joint position of the HIV community for a UN consultation on the theme of health and the post-2015 global goals.
This survey is anonymous. The survey responses will be compiled and presented by The Fremont Center, an independent consulting group working with International Civil Society Support (ICSS).
The deadline to participate is January 20th!. The survey can be taken at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ICSS-post-2015-goals-survey. Any questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.

From the press release:
“A large number of policy makers, civil society leaders, and health networks are already discussing what an appropriate post-2015 health goal (or goals) should be. Under those goals, there will also be a need to set specific targets and indicators to measure progress towards the goals. While the MDGs included a specific goal addressing HIV, it is unlikely that the next set of goals will include something specific to HIV. Many experts believe that the UN member states will set only one overarching post-2015 health goal, but that there will be ways to set a global goal on health that, alongside other goals on poverty, education, gender equality, and the environment, will provide new opportunities to coalesce unified commitment and action for progress in the fight to end the HIV epidemic.
We need to ensure that these discussions include the perspectives of all people working to end the HIV epidemic, including people living with HIV and other key affected populations (men who have sex with men, people who use drugs, sex workers and transgender people).
This survey has been launched to gather your ideas and recommendations. What post-2015 global health goals will help accelerate the end of HIV and AIDS? What specific targets and indicators are essential to track in the HIV response?”
