    UNAIDS activities in HIV / AIDS, human rights and law.

    Joint United Nations Programme on HIV / AIDS [UNAIDS]

    Geneva, Switzerland, UNAIDS, [2003]. [6] p.

    UNAIDS in collaboration with the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) and other partners has developed guidelines advancing human rights in the context of HIV/AIDS. In February 1998, UNAIDS and OHCHR jointly published the International Guidelines on HIV/AIDS and Human Rights. These guidelines set the standards for upholding HIV/AIDS related human rights at the national, regional, and international levels. These Guidelines are a useful resource in the necessary scaling up of the response to HIV/AIDS by all actors concerned - governments and non-governmental organizations, the United Nations system and other international and regional organizations. Through UNAIDS funding and technical support, the International Council of AIDS Service Organizations (ICASO) published the NGO Summary and Advocates Guide as a more user-friendly form of the International Guidelines to enhance the document's accessibility. The NGO Summary and Advocates Guide has been distributed widely at national, regional, and international levels. It has been translated into Spanish and French. In July 2002, the OHCHR and UNAIDS convened a group of experts to update Guideline 6 of the International Guidelines on HIV/AIDS and Human Rights. The Revised Guideline 6: Access to prevention, treatment, care and support provides an up-to-date policy guidance that is based on current scientific progress, international law and best practice at country level.
