In a conference of international human rights advocates connected with the 2006 International AIDS Conference in Toronto, most of the organizational representatives agreed on the importance of new analytical and advocacy tools, including facilitated access to experts and expertise in HIV human and civil rights issues; and new mechanisms for information sharing, such as a web-based resource center. CHLP received mention as a potential model for future international systems. We are excited for the acknowledgment of Catherine’s contributions to the future of HIV advocacy.
The Center for HIV Law and Policy challenges barriers to the rights and health of people affected by HIV through legal advocacy, high-impact policy initiatives, and creation of cross-issue partnerships, networks, and resources. We support movement building that amplifies the power of individuals and communities to mobilize for change that is rooted in racial, gender, and economic justice.
