Welcome to the website on supporting the response to the HIV epidemic in Eastern and Southern Africa through the international human rights framework. This website is designed to offer easy access to a series of advocacy tools that can be used by parliamentarians, government officials, members of the judiciary, lawyers, civil society organisations, people living with HIV and all interested institutions and individuals to promote and implement a human rights approach to the response to HIV. The advocacy tools provided on this website are:
In addition to these advocacy tools, the website also offers an important library of reference documents including HIV-related treaties, declarations, legislation, policies and case law from Eastern and Southern Africa and other regions. Other documents that may be useful in furthering the understanding of the legal and policy issues related to HIV are also provided. More information about this website and the advocacy tools, their background, relevance and aim, is available in the message from UNDP and in the introduction to the advocacy tools.
