Le VIH et les droits de l'homme. Guide pratique à l'intention des institutions nationales des droits de l'homme
Manual sobre el VIH y los derechos humanos para las instituciones nacionales de derechos humanos
This Handbook is designed to assist national human rights institutions to integrate HIV into their mandate to protect and promote human rights. It provides a basic overview of the role of human rights in an effective response to the epidemic and suggests concrete activities that national institutions can carry out within their existing work. It also presents possibilities for engaging with the national HIV response in order to protect and promote human rights, in the context of the “Three Ones”. This Handbook is primarily intended for use by staff of national human rights institutions, civil society organizations, networks of people living with HIV and national AIDS programmes. Government institutions and other partners of national institutions may also find it useful. The Handbook should be read together with the International Guidelines on HIV/AIDS and Human Rights.
