      Subject: [athenanetwork] Fwd: Global Commission on HIV and the Law - Call for Submissions for ASIA-PACIFIC Regional Dialogue

       

       

      FYI

       

      the Global Commission on HIV and the Law is seeking submissions from the asia-pacific region

       

      On behalf of the Global Commission on HIV and the Law, this is a Call for Submissions for the Commission’s Asia-Pacific Regional Dialogue.

       

      The first Regional Dialogue for the Asia-Pacific will take place on 24-25 February 2011 in Bangkok, Thailand. In addition to giving voice to regional and country perspectives on issues of HIV and the law, the dialogue aims to contribute to regional efforts for creating enabling legal environments which support effective HIV responses.

       

      The Commission looks forward to hearing from you if you have worked or presently work in the Asia-Pacific on the following issues:

       

      (1) Laws and practices that effectively criminalise people living with HIV and vulnerable to HIV

      (2) Laws and practices that mitigate and sustain violence and discrimination lived by women

      (3) Laws and practices that facilitate or impede HIV-related treatment access, and

      (4) Issues of law and HIV pertaining to children

       

      How to Submit

      Instructions on how to submit can be found in the Call for Submissions. The English version of the Call for Submissions can be found at:

      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.

       

      Regional Dialogues

      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.
