The Executive Director, Americas Division, Human Rights Watch (HRW), José Miguel Vivanco, and HRW Global Advocacy Director Peggy Hicks on Friday sent a letter to President Hugo Chávez, to establish a position on Venezuela's candidacy to the United Nations Human Rights Council. The voting will take place next Monday.

In the letter, the NGO representatives said it is "essential" that states that are members of the Human Rights Council "adhere to the highest standards in the promotion and protection of human rights." Vivanco and Hicks warned that Venezuela "currently falls far short of acceptable standards."

They also highlighted that "urgent measures are needed to reverse the policies and practices" of the Venezuelan government, which "have undercut human rights protections in several crucial areas."

At first she agreed that I use her real name, that she had no problems with that at all. After all, living with HIV had driven her to help others – as a workshop facilitator giving talks and conducting seminars, or as a volunteer for local AIDS Service Organizations like Acción Solidaria (Solidary Action) and Mujeres Unidas por la Salud (Women United for Health, or Musa), a support group network for HIV-positive women. But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
