10 Reasons Why Human Rights Should Occupy the Center of the Global AIDS Struggle
At the 2006 United Nations High Level Meeting on HIV/AIDS, world leaders reaffirmed that “the full realization of all human rights and fundamental freedoms for all is an essential element in the global response to the HIV/AIDS pandemic.” Yet, 25 years into the AIDS epidemic, this “essential element” remains the missing piece in the fight against AIDS. Now more than ever, law and human rights should occupy the center of the global HIV/AIDS struggle. This booklet, published by OSI’s Law and Health Initiative, presents 10 reasons why. This edition contains the endorsements of 24 leading HIV/AIDS organizations and networks throughout the world.
Translations of the publication are available in French, Russian, and Spanish.
