Cary Alan Johnson, the Executive Director of the organization explained that Nigel Fisher, (a coordinator that works for the UN Stabilization Mission) has pledged to help the LGBT and HIV+ Haitians in need. Letting it be known that he comfort of all citizens is what is important when it comes to Haiti’s overall rebuilding process.

He further explained:

“People living with or affected by HIV and AIDS, or gay and transgender minorities, they are still left out in the cold,” said Fisher.

“So I can say to the summit organizers: You’ve already done two things in bringing me here. One, you’ve raised my awareness by inviting me. But, two, you’ve allowed me to meet with . . . Haitian advocates here. And we’ve already come up with some ideas about how we can work together once we return to Haiti.”
