We came across this message and we thought it prudent to share. Representation of the global south and indeed African nations in such gatherings is usually less than desired. We hope the countries on the continent eligible to participate through this window (Algeria, Djibouti, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Somalia, Sudan, Tunisia) will mobilize to have their actions, progress and lessons shared with the world.


The Arab States Regional Office of the United Nations Population Fund is pleased to announce a late breaker possibility to participate in the satellite session organized by UNFPA as well as in MENA Region Networking Zone at the International AIDS Conference that will take place 22-27 July 2012 in Washington, D.C., USA.
