We are writing to you today as representatives of regional, national and local civil society organizations, key population communities and networks to welcome the zero draft of the Global AIDS Strategy and to express our support to the efforts of UNAIDS Strategy Team, UNAIDS Secretariat and Co-Sponsors, PCB member states, and global experts community in developing the draft Strategy.
The CEECA civil society and key populations communities support the ongoing efforts in relation to the Strategy development and its framing using the lens of inequalities. While there are noticeable gaps in the result areas, which we will push for inclusion, we should not backtrack on already agreed language enshrined in the 2016-2021 UNAIDS Strategy, including naming key populations and addressing key contextual challenges in effective HIV response, which specifically affect the CEECA region. We want to express a need to emphasize the centrality of communities and key populations in the global response to HIV in the Global AIDS Strategy.
We stand together and counter any moves to further delay this process or dilute the current zero draft. Particularly, we stress the following:
We believe that fully and sustainably funded and properly implemented new Global AIDS Strategy has a potential to finally end AIDS in our region. This can only happen if community and key population voices are heard and listened to, communities , human rights, prevention and gender equality are at the front and centre of the Strategy and evidence-based HIV intervention are recognised, accepted and sustainably funded and implemented across the EECA region.
Чтобы достичь нашей общей цели по искоренению СПИДа к 2030 году осталось менее 10 лет. Координационный совет программы (КСП) поручил ЮНЭЙДС разработать следующую глобальную стратегию по СПИДу. Стратегия будет опираться на уже достигнутые значительные успехи и ускорит темпы действий - она будет амбициозной, дальновидной и основанной на фактических данных.
Представляем Аннотированный резюме Глобальной стратегии по СПИДу на период 2021 - 2026 гг на русском языке. Помимо простого поддержания и развития важнейших принципов, основ и программных подходов в рамках текущей Стратегии ЮНЭЙДС, также уделяется приоритетное внимание критическим областям, которые отстают и нуждаются в большем внимании для включения в следующую Стратегию. ЮНЭЙДС продолжает инклюзивный консультативный процесс по завершению разработки Глобальной стратегии после 47-го заседания КСП в декабре 2020 года.
