United Nations AIDS Session: Email Input Sought.
* For more information about the United Nations special session see http://www.unaids.org; also see http://www.hdnet.org (Health and Development Networks, which "has been commissioned by UNAIDS to help ensure that NGO and community voices are channeled, in a transparent way, into the UN General Assembly special session on HIV/AIDS").
* One possible way to participate in person is through the official delegation of your government. Also, some nonprofit organizations already have official status at the United Nations, and your group might be able to work through them.
* To join the online discussion group at any time, send an email to: email@example.com The best time for participation may be February, since a meeting to organize the agenda will take place later this month.
We have heard unofficially that although the United Nations session itself is in June, the content is likely to be mostly set by then, so the most important times for participation will be earlier, especially before February 26 - March 2, and April 23 - 27, which are informal consultations for government delegates. These meetings will take place in New York, and civil society organizations might or might not be able to address the delegates.
For most organizations, the email discussion group will be the most accessible way to participate.
