Delegates from Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela will attend a three-day workshop on HIV-related services in the Andean region from September 23-25, 2014.
The workshop will be facilitated by a technical team from IDLO and the regional centers of UNDP and UNAIDS, based in Panama. Its purpose is to improve access to justice and legal services so that HIV-affected populations can fully exercise and enjoy their human rights.
Specific goals for the workshop include:
- Building the knowledge and skills of participants in the provision of legal services with a focus on rights and HIV.
- Strengthening networks and alliances between institutions and civil society organizations in the region.
- Updating information on existing legal frameworks in order to promote the adoption of laws, policies, rules and regulations compliant with human rights standards.
