U.N. Declaration On TB Draft Text Posted For Review, Approval Under ‘Silence’ Procedure
Intellectual Property Watch: Shhh … U.N. Declaration On Tuberculosis Draft Text Out For Approval
“Negotiators’ agreed draft text for a United Nations political declaration on ending tuberculosis worldwide has been posted for all member states to see, and negotiators hope, not comment on. Under a U.N. procedure, the text has been placed ‘under silence’ until 10:00am New York time on 14 September. If no one breaks the silence, the text is considered agreed and will advance to the High-Level Meeting on Tuberculosis on 26 September as part of the annual U.N. General Assembly…” (New, 9/11).
