Subject: re: 5077 VANUATU: Government snubs HIV/AIDS doco

Dear Friends

Thank you for your note about the Government stance on HIV and AIDS in Vanuatu. I am not quite sure whether you are aware but Vanuatu is currently in the process of reporting to the UNCEDAW in Augst of last year. I have been working closely with the Government and NGOs on CEDAW implementation in the region and I did advise them that there is a directive from the UNCEDAW that each state party MUST report on the status of women in their country. In the case of Vanuatu, your news report will really make an interesting case for the NGOs to include in their shadow report.

I am linking you up with Gina Houng-Lee of the Regional Rights
Resource Team. RRRT have been working with the NGOs on their shadow report.

Wishing you all the best.
