Special Accreditation of Civil Society

On 27 March 2006, almost 800 civil society organizations were cleared by UN Member States for special accreditation to attend the Review — an unprecedented number. These organizations will be able to join organizations already accredited to ECOSOC and those that will take part as members of national delegations in the Review.

The decision to offer special accreditation to such a high number of organizations marks a critical moment in the history of the AIDS response helping to underline commitment from many corners of the world to work on AIDS across sectors and in partnership. The Review promises an unprecedented level of involvement for civil society including presentation slots in plenary, roundtable and panel sessions.

UNAIDS is currently approaching donors to mobilize funds to support civil society attendance at the Review — details will be made available soon.
