Joint NGO Statement calls for continued Dutch Leadership in AIDS Response
April 8, 2015
Today, at a high level meeting in The Hague, The Netherlands, the Dutch government will be called on to demonstrate leadership to end the AIDS epidemic.
The HIV/AIDS Platform The Netherlands calls in a joint NGO statement for investments in populations and areas where the needs remain urgent and where the Netherlands can have the greatest impact:
- key populations (LGBT’s, sex workers and people who use drugs),
- women and girls,
- Middle Income Countries,
- the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria.
The statement will be handed over to Dutch Members of Parliament during a meeting in which Michel Sidibé from UNAIDS, Minister Ploumen of Development Aid, local organisations and many others will speak about Dutch leadership in the AIDS response. The HIV/AIDS Platform includes STOP AIDS NOW! and other Dutch AIDS organisations.
