Press Release

Press Release

Blue Diamond Society strongly condemn and express disappointment over participation of three non-homosexual and trans gender  people in the  Asian Regional  Level Conference on HIV/AIDS which actually was schedule for MSM/TG people starting today in Bangkok Thailand, with malafied intension of WHO and ministry of Health Nepal. It is known and proven fact that homosexual and Transgender people are one of the prone and vulnerable communities to HIV/AIDS risk. Even Nepal Government has identified MSM/TG as high risk groups towards HIV/AIDS and has been running special programs for reducing risk of this group. Due to social, economic and legal constrains and lack of access to health the risk towards HIV/AIDS is increasing day by day. As the conference was focusing on reducing risk of HIV/AIDS of MSM/TG community it was expected that experts working in this communities in Nepal participating on the conference. But with WHO and Ministry of Health with some vested interest even without informing anyone from communities secretly send participants who are not familiar with MSM/TG issues /Non Community. Since some funds are certain to be allocated for MSM/TG some people with  malafied  intensions are playing on this regards and non-homosexual and Trans gender people are attending conference with personal interest of bringing the fund which is to be granted for actual homosexual and transgender of Nepal. It is clear that people attending conference are neither from community nor working on this area or neither they had expertise in this issue. This is not first learnt case where responsible government agency and international organization sending wrong persons to these kinds of conferences. It is clear that WHO and ministry of Health by sending wrong person are eager to minimize this community issue, these two agencies should take responsibility for this kind of reckless and wrong act. We want to know how and why this serious decision was taken in errors’ way. We demand in future that WHO and ministry of Health won’t repeat this kind of serious error and we also demand to monitor this issue. And finally we demand to ends these kinds of mistakes where non community people take benefits in the name of community.
