You are invited to participate! Community Dialogue Space at the Second Eastern Europe and Central Asia AIDS Conference (EECAAC)

Dear colleagues,

As communities lie at the core of effective AIDS responses, we are pleased to announce that a Community Dialogue Space “Besedka” will be featured at the Second Eastern Europe and Central Asia AIDS Conference (EECAAC) on 3-5 May 2008 through a joint collaboration between the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) the United Nations Joint Programme on AIDS (UNAIDS) and the East European and Central Asian Union of PLHIV Organisations (ECUO).

The Community Dialogue Space will be specifically designed to provide community representatives attending EECAAC with a comfortable space for open group discussions on key issues, informal dialogue with international leaders such as Michel Kazatchkine, Executive Director of the Global Fund, and Peter Piot UNAIDS Executive Director, interaction with mass media representatives, cultural and interactive events, presentations and press-conferences.

The core constituency of the Community Dialogue Space will be a host group of approximately 25 local community representatives from Eastern Europe and Central Asia. This core constituency will act as the overall hosting body for activities in the space. The community representatives will be selected based on their demonstrated leadership at the local level and willingness to share their experience with others.

If interested in participating in Besedka during the EECAAC conference, please fill out and send the attached Expression of Interest by 22 February 2008 to Ms. Anastasia Kamlyk at anastasia.kamlyk@undp.org. If selected, will need to be available to participate actively in the development of the Besedka programme via phone and e-mail and from 15 March.
