This section lists decisions made at the PCB Meetings.
Thank you, Chair.
We have all invested our time and resources that have translated into the UNAIDS 2016-2021 Strategy, which the board passed on Monday. This Strategy is strongly immersed on the fast-track approach, for us as women, men, transgender, children and youth, and we all trust it can lead us to the promised land, “a land with no AIDS BY 2030”.
Power of partnership for Implementation, innovation and equity: collective solutions for a sustainability AIDS response.
Thank you, Chair. It is true that this panel is important to make sure that we are implementing solutions collectively in the spirit of partnership.
Thank you, Mr. Chair.
And thank you Dasha for, again, calling our attention to the issues and the situation of Europe, especially the Eastern European and Central Asian region.
We would like to thank Dr. Mayaki for his strong words in support of civil society and community-based approaches for addressing HIV. The NGO delegation shares the emphasis on the need to increase multisectorality. HIV teaches us how much we all need one another, across differences in economies, geographies, and ideologies.
Thank you Mr. Chair,
The NGO Delegation appreciates the focus on HIV in prisons and closed settings in the UNAIDS Strategy 2016-2021.
We agree with the assertion that HIV prevalence among prisoners may be up to 50 times higher than in the general population. We understand that many of the activities, which put people at risk of contracting HIV, are highly stigmatized in society and in many cases are considered ‘illegal’.
On behalf of the NGO Delegation, we express our appreciation to Joel Rehnstrom and his team for incorporating the majority of our recommendations into this document. Thank you.
We now have the UNAIDS strategy that is needed to call a halt to the illness, death, and family grief that HIV can cause. We can stop the suffering now. But to realize this hope, we need ambitious indicators and we need an ambitious budget. We fear the budget numbers provided here – a zero growth budget – will not accelerate the HIV response in the way that is absolutely needed to save lives.
Thank you Mr. Chair, I’m gonna speak in spanish, voy a hablar en español.
Hemos llegado a un momento único en nuestra historia: el de poner fin a una pandemia global que ha causado estragos entre millones de vidas en todo el mundo.
