Supporting countries to implement the recommendations of the Global Commission on HIV and the Law.
Despite the significant progress in scaling up work on HIV, human rights violations and stigma remain serious barriers to better HIV and health responses. Greater focus on protecting, upholding and fulfilling the rights of people living with HIV and those most affected is essential for delivering on the pledge made by Member States in Agenda 2030 to leave no one behind.
The Global Commission on HIV and the law issued its landmark report in July 2012 and made several recommendations how the law can be used to respond to HIV in an evidence informed, rights based manner. Since the release of the Global Commission’s report, UNDP, working in partnership with UN Member States, civil society, UNAIDS cosponsors, the UNAIDS Secretariat, and other partners has supported the advancement of the Commission’s recommendations in at least 88 countries.
