About the Global Commission on HIV and the Law
The Global Commission on HIV and the Law was formally launched in June 2010 by UNDP on behalf of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS. The Commission is charged with developing actionable and evidence-informed recommendations for effective HIV responses that respect the human rights of people living with HIV and those most vulnerable to it. The Commission will focus on some of the most challenging legal and human rights issues in the context of HIV as enumerated above.
To ensure that it is informed by and responding to country needs and perspectives, the Commission will host a series of Regional Dialogues in which representatives from a diverse range of civil society organizations representing affected and key populations will meaningfully interact with governments and authorities that shape and execute the law. The Regional Dialogues will also be an important opportunity for the voices of civil society Affected by human rights issues related to HIV to be heard.
