- The need to repeal norms and policies that criminalize, or penalize people with HIV as well as the behavior of key populations, withhold from adopting and considering new legislation and policies with such content, and focus on enabling legislation instead.
- Reform norms and policies that prevent NGOs from engaging in a meaningful dialogue with government. Encourage NGOs to participate in decision-making processes that concern HIV services and perform as effective and cost-efficient service providers. Engage civil society in social contracting and plurilateral public-private partnerships.
- Prepare countries for scaling up national HIV responses in the context of flat-lined or decreasing external funding for HIV, by modernizing treatment regimens, optimizing service delivery models, engaging civil society, increasing access to ARV medicines and medicines for HIV co-infections, including through stimulating generic competition.
