Taking note of the Independent Expert Panel (IEP) report as well as the management response, and the statement by the representative of the UNAIDS Staff Association on the report, the PCB NGO delegation makes the following points:
6. On the way forward, we note:
Finally, we commit to constructive and accountable actions in support of the proposed changes for the next six months and beyond to return UNAIDS to its credible leading role in the global AIDS response. We will work with our constituencies, with the PCB, with management, and with UNAIDS staff to support these changes. People around the world living with and/or affected by HIV and AIDS deserve no less than an independent and strong UNAIDS which inspires positive change and leads by example.
We call on the UN Secretary General to continue taking all the necessary measures to continue being a champion for gender equality and in ensuring that all UN employees enjoy a safe and enabling working environment.
