  6. That the issue of HIV and AIDS be considered as a programme area at the next World Council;

  7. That the World Alliance develops a policy framework on the issue of access to treatment for persons living with HIV and AIDS (that will include the contextual analysis, international laws) and possible actions for national movements to undertake.
