Compendium of key documents relating to human rights and HIV in Eastern and Southern Africa

Posted by ARASA on August 6, 2009

Based on feedback from a set of stakeholder consultations involving diverse groups of people, including parliamentarians, from 22 countries in Eastern and Southern Africa, UNDP’s HIV and AIDS Team located at the Regional Service Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa, identified the need to develop advocacy and information material on human rights-based responses to HIV in the region.The initiative culminated in the development of a set of tools designed to support policy and legislative review and reform.

These include: 

  1. Guide to an effective human rights response to the HIV epidemic;
  2. Checklist of human rights obligations to effectively address HIV and AIDS in Eastern and Southern Africa;
  3. Powerpoint cum Flip Chart presentation; and
  4. Compendium and CD-Rom of key documents relating to human rights and HIV in Eastern and Southern Africa.

It is envisaged that the tools would strengthen the capacity of stakeholders in Eastern and Southern Africa to advocate for a
human rights-based response to HIV. The tools also provide guidelines to facilitate the evaluation and strengthening of policy
and legislation.
