Abstract

"For the first time since the start of the pandemic, the United Nations General Assembly will be holding a Special Session on HIV/AIDS. Every member country of the United Nations will be sending a delegation. NGOs should participate in some way in the Special Session because (a) the Special Session will produce a Declaration of Commitment that could set the tone for the global response to the epidemic over the next decade; and (b) the Special Session will focus world attention on the pandemic.

"ICASO has developed a guide with the purpose to assist you to advocate to be part of (or to influence) your national delegations, and to describe other ways in which you can participate in this historic process."
