This toolkit is for attorneys, advocates, and people with HIV working to establish, strengthen, or expand HIV-related legal services. It sets forth practical recommendations regarding the design and scaling up of HIV-related legal services; various models of service delivery; capacity-building for staff; monitoring and evaluation; and mobilization of financial, human, and technical resources. Its authors, IDLO, UNAIDS, and UNDP, rightly believe that HIV-related legal services protect and promote the human rights of people with HIV, including the right to access HIV prevention, treatment, care, and other support services.
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.
