Examining Human Rights Program Integration Into National HIV Plans

October 26, 2012

The International HIV/AIDS Alliance has been providing technical support for UNAIDS since 2011 to assist policymakers in integrating human rights programs into National Strategic Plans for HIV (NSPs), the organization's blog states and notes, "As part of the project, three regional workshops were held for: East and Southern Africa; the Middle East and North Africa; and the Asia/Pacific regions." The blog continues, "The workshops aimed to increase participants' knowledge of why human rights and HIV programs must be connected, and how a lack of integration is undermining the effectiveness of the HIV response." A report, co-published by UNAIDS and the Alliance and titled "Making it Work," provides "some short-term outcomes and lessons learnt from this initiative," according to the blog (10/24).
