000 German beekeepers are calling for a nationwide ban on the cultivation of GMO crops.

The legislation is strongly opposed by GM proponents and has turned into a controversial issue through the entire EU. The DIB can be urging Agriculture Minister Christian Schmidt to enact a ban throughout the entire country, but the minister is calling for every state or region within Germany to decide on an individual basis. The beekeepers argue that will not be an effective answer because of the range that bees travel to collect nectar. The DIB keeps that this kind of a piecemeal approach including some areas that are GM-totally free and others that are not is definitely environmentally and agriculturally unacceptable, adding that bees haven’t any borders. The risk to the honeybees produced by GM agriculture comes from the widespread use of specific pesticides by the sector that contain neonicotinoids, which were proven to be toxic to bees and other forms of life.

The Ukraine lagged considerably behind its targets to prevent the spread of HIV and offer treatment to people living with the virus, so HIV Helps Alliance was called for help. Thus giving the Ukraine the opportunity to address concerns of slow implementation, governance and management issues. The primary goals after the hand over to the HIV AIDS Alliance were to guarantee the epidemic not spreading further and those who need treatment receiving treatment. The Government of the Ukraine, which chairs the Country Coordinating Mechanism and through the Ministry of Wellness offers pledged its support and assistance to this process and to the Alliance and IDA ARV B.V.
