Blog: How PEPFAR Fares in Addressing Stigma, Discrimination
December 24, 2009
The Physicians for Human Rights' blog, "Health Rights Advocate", analyzes how several PEPFAR country framework agreements fare in addressing issues related to stigma and discrimination. "PHR found that although PEPFAR's newly released five-year strategy incorporates the vital goals of stigma-free HIV programs and reaching even the most marginalized populations, the initial partnership framework agreements inadequately address these issues," the blog writes. The blog summarizes several key findings from the analysis and provides a link to recommendations by the group (Friedman, 12/15).
