The family unites all humanity across cultural and national boundaries as well as the essentiality of basic and continued care-giving measures. This includes the important economic, medical, psychological and social infrastructure concerns in combating the devastating and multiplying impact of AIDS on the family.This side event was hosted by the U.S. Federation for Middle East Peace (“USFMEP”) and co-sponsored by the Association National AL HIDN, Morocco.
