Excerpt
Twenty-seven participants from 17 countries attended the meeting. They were national AIDS programme staff and those involved in care services for people living with HIVIAIDS. In addition, there were representatives of HIVIAIDS care related international and regional nongovernmental organizations, observers, HIVIAIDS WHO headquarters staff, as well as WHOEMRO regional advisers. The agenda, programme and list of participants are presented in annexes 1, 2 and 3 respectively. Annex 4 lists guidelines for working groups in developing national HIVIAIDS care plans. In the opening session, Dr Abdulla Asa'edi, Assistant Regional Director, delivered a message from Dr Hussein A. Gezairy, WHO Regional Director for the Eastern Mediterranean. In his message, Dr Gezairy stressed that in the Declaration of Commitment of the United Nations Special Session on HIVIAIDS, it was acknowledged that both prevention and care must be included as fundamental elements of a stronger overall response to the epidemic. Access to medications in the context of pandemics such as HIVIAIDS was considered to be a fundamental element of achieving the right of everyone to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health, as stated in the resolution adopted by the UN Commission on Human Rights in April 2001. He reminded participants that the Strategic Plan for Improving Health Sector Response to HIVIAIDS and Sexually Transmitted Diseases in the Eastern Mediterranean Region stated clearly in its third target that by the year 2005, all countries would have sustained and comprehensive HIVIAIDS and STD prevention and care packages integrated into the health care delivery system.
