How was this guide developed and who was involved?
This guide was developed by the International HIV/AIDS Alliance (the Alliance) and the AIDS
and Rights Alliance for Southern Africa (ARASA) www.arasa.info
The Alliance is committed to a human rights-based approach to HIV programming and advocacy. We recognise that respect for, and the protection and promotion of, human rights is essential to preventing HIV and mitigating its social and economic impact. We are striving towards the fulfillment of the human rights of all people affected by HIV, by addressing not just HIV but wider health and development issues.
ARASA is a regional partnership of more than 70 non-governmental organisations (NGOs) that works collaboratively to promote and build capacity around a rights-based response to HIV and tuberculosis (TB) in 18 countries in southern and east Africa. All ARASA partners are organisations committed to the empowerment of women and men living with, affected by and at higher risk of HIV and TB, so as to achieve their fullest potential rights and health.
This guide draws on the experiences of Alliance programmes globally and those of ARASA
