Pursuant to General Assembly Resolution 60/224, the meeting will be open to all Member States and observers.

In line with General Assembly Resolution 60/224, the meeting will also be open to heads of entities of the United Nations system, including programmes, funds, specialized agencies and regional commissions, as well as the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, the Secretary-General’s Special Envoys on HIV/AIDS, intergovernmental organizations and entities that have observer status with the General Assembly, non-governmental organizations in consultative status with the Economic and Social Council, non-governmental members of the UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board, and other invited civil society organizations as listed in A/60/CRP.2, as approved in General Assembly Decision 60/554 of 27 March.

Since some of the civil society representatives who are proposed to participate are still seeking financial support to attend, and some people’s personal circumstances can present challenges to their ability to travel, this note proposes alternates for many civil society speakers. In addition, the President of the General Assembly would propose to draw from the entirety of the list of alternates in this paper and its attachments if both a speaker and alternate are unavailable, or if the replacement of speakers with principal alternates would leave any meeting unbalanced in terms of gender or region.

The Office of the General Assembly President will inform Member States about changes in the composition of the panels and roundtables, if any.
