UNDP Discussion Paper - Making the Law Work for Women and Girls in the Context of HIV

Publish Year

UNDP has worked with governments, the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/ AIDS (UNAIDS) Secretariat, UNAIDS co-sponsors and civil society in 89 countries to advance the recommendations of the Global Commission on HIV and the Law and to promote enabling legal, policy and regulatory environments for rights-based HIV responses, including for women and girls. Ending the HIV epidemic is possible, but not without redoubling efforts and investments in creating enabling legal and policy environments, addressing the impact of laws and policies on women and girls and providing legal empowerment to women and girls living with and vulnerable to HIV.
