Dear colleagues and friends,
I have the great pleasure to invite you to the first UN Forum on AIDS on 6 August 2009. As indicated in my communication of June 2009, we have restructured the management framework around the UN Joint Programme on AIDS to increase efficiency and accountability. Within this new structure the UN Forum on AIDS will be the platform for a broad exchange and dialogue between all relevant stakeholders involved in the response to AIDS in China. The UN Forum on AIDS will focus on specific themes of special interest, and this first event will be around the theme of Reaching Vulnerable Migrant Workers in China.
Dr Hao Yang, Deputy Director General of the Disease Control Bureau, MoH, has kindly agreed to chair this important meeting and launch with us what should be an exciting platform for dialogue.
I look forward to your active participation.
Dr Bernhard Schwartländer
Country Coordinator, UNAIDS China
Coordinator, UN Forum on AIDS
