    How to prevent HIV in Ethiopia? Do nothing new for the general population where HIV incidence is low and unchanging. Intensify HIV prevention through condom skills development and community empowerment among female sex workers where HIV prevalence has just been scientifically measured at 24%. Oh, and treat these women.

    Thank you for reaching out to us, Steven! You're right that many of the challenges CSOs face are primarily at the national level. That is one reason why influencing the agenda of inter-governmental talks is considered to be important for many CSOs.

    I would add that people who spend their life in a development environment may fail to recognise jargon when they see it, because they see it so often. So maybe an extra 'Do': maintain awareness of which words or phrases the rest of the world does not use or understand? (Nina Caplan, Chief Editor, Save the Children)

    The video, and the reality, is about national-level challenges to civil society. Roughly speaking, this has nothing to do with the article's statement:

    "In the lead-up to the 69th Session of the UN General Assembly this week, CSOs are arguing that even though many organizations and activitsts are regularly invited to voice their concerns, they nonetheless stand little chance of influencing the real agenda because the inter-governmental system is almost entirely state-driven."

    While this may be true, the evidence is not in this blog.
