25 June 2011 | Press Release
Friday, June 25 – Press Associations Act-Up, Support, Sidaction + Coalition, Solidarity and AIDS Solthis.
Yesterday, Nicolas Sarkozy should have received the representatives of French NGOs invested in the development field. Alas, this highly anticipated appointment was canceled by the Elysée because of the priority given by the President to meet with footballer Thierry Henry. On the eve of his departure for the G8 summit being held this year in Canada, the associations would have liked to remind the President that he must be up to the challenges and expectations of such a summit, including three critical :
- the goal of universal access to prevention, care and treatment against AIDS,
- the importance of generic drugs,
- the proposed tax on financial transactions.
