U.S., E.U. Ask U.N. To Reinstate Groups Barred From Upcoming AIDS Meeting

Agence France-Presse: U.S., E.U. protest U.N. decision to bar groups from AIDS meet
“The United States and the European Union are protesting a U.N. decision to bar at least 20 non-governmental groups from taking part in a major AIDS conference next month. U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power said the NGOs taken off the list of participants ‘appear to have been chosen for their involvement in LGBTI, transgender, or youth advocacy.’ … The E.U. ambassador wrote in his letter sent last week that changes to an initial list of delegations were made without consulting member states. … The high-level meeting is aimed at fast-tracking measures to end the HIV epidemic by 2030” (5/17).
