Human Rights Must Come First!

Civil Society Advocacy and Mobilization Continues Post UN Political Declaration on HIV Outcome

The Global Network of Sex Work Projects (NSWP), The Global Network of Trans Women and HIV (IRGT), Global Action for Trans Equality (GATE),  and MSMGF (The Global Forum on MSM & HIV) together with the Global Platform to Fast-Track the HIV and Human Rights Responses Among Gay and Bisexual Men and Other Men Who Have Sex with Men (The Platform) with the support of over 80 civil society networks mobilize to disseminate The Global Civil Society Organization (CSO) Declaration to End HIV

The CSO Declaration is the outcome of an unprecedented civil society-led global advocacy consultation and engagement process to provide a unified voice on why the exclusion of key populations in the UN Political Declaration is a threat to ending the epidemic.
