I have not met with officials from Code Blue but I have been briefed by DFID officials on Code Blue’s concerns about the allegations of sexual harassment at UNAIDS. My officials met with Code Blue on 28 February to discuss this issue and informed them of the measures the UK is taking to raise safeguarding standards with all our partners, including UNAIDS, and that tackling harassment will be a priority during our Chairmanship of the Programme and Coordinating Board.
