Come tell the UN and its 200 member governments what you think and need for your Right to Health. Together, the community will forge its Declaration for the ‘World’s Leaders’.
Wednesday the 8th of June marks the opening of the High Level Meeting of the UN on Universal Access and HIV, and the Million Message March to the UN arrives in New York for this important global health event. The March is a collaborative campaign over 7 months to mobilize the broad ‘community’ towards greater involvement in Right to Health issues, by gathering their messages, online and frontline, and delivering them, loud and clear, direct to our ‘World Leaders’.
To amplify the ‘voices’ of the community, and mobilize new interest and energies on related issues, the IMAXI Cooperative, friends and partners are organizing over 75 Speak-Up Sessions non-stop during the 24 hours of June 8th. These Speak-Ups, moderated live from dozens of communities around the world by partners, experts and activists on diverse topics, are 20 minute long chats on twitter, with links via SMS, Facebook and blogs. The topics for each session are the moderators’ choice, derived from the draft UN Declaration (or what’s missing) and related issues of interest to their community members / followers.
The Speak-Up Sessions encourage a wide range of people to be more involved, through various platforms of communications, and to join in the ‘open’ drafting of recommendations which will be included in the final declaration. These community-driven policy documents will be submitted at the end of the Million Message March to the High Commissioner on Human Rights on HR Day in December.
Together, we’re opening the UN, and delivering the community’s Right to Health messages loud and clear, from the bottom up to the top.
