International Council of Nurses, International AIDS Society and AIDS-Free World Appeal to Delegates to 62nd World Health Assembly: “Lose no more time creating a new UN agency for women.”

Last September, in a thrilling moment in the history of the United Nations and all its member countries, the General Assembly voted unanimously in favour of creating a new women’s agency. This agency is essential and long overdue. As organizations concerned with women’s health and human rights, we urge delegates to the WHA to insist that your governments support its speedy creation.
