|The UNAIDS Guide to the United Nations Human Rights Machinery: for AIDS service organizations, people living with HIV/AIDS, and others working in the area of HIV/AIDS and human rights. (Best Practice - Key Material) (UNAIDS, 1997, 92 p.)|
UNAIDS is committed to human rights, to a multisectoral approach, and to support for nongovernmental organizations, AIDS Service Organizations, community-based organizations and people living with HIV/AIDS in their work with HIV/AIDS. In this context, UNAIDS hopes that this guide will be a useful asset to existing, planned and future human rights activities; that it will result in more documentation of HIV-related human rights issues and more advocacy and action to counter HIV-related discrimination; that it will encourage the United Nations human rights bodies to take on and maintain HIV-related issues under their respective mandates; and that it will assist States to develop a positive policy and legal framework for effective HIV/AIDS prevention and care programmes.
