5185.0 HIV/AIDS & Human Rights

Wednesday, November 2, 2011: 12:30 PM
As HIV has become an infection that may be managed much like other chronic diseases, a focus on treatment and prevention continues. Efforts to conduct HIV testing, engage infected individuals in care, and reduce HIV transmission risk are priorities as HIV prevalence rates increase. The HIV/AIDS Section seeks to disseminate study findings related to HIV and its relationship to human rights in order to improve future program planning and inform needed research efforts. This session is aimed to share latest research on topics related to human rights and HIV. The section identified this area as a priority, as human rights are at the core of this infection and continue to be violated in the name of the infection. The section supported the development of session in order to share innovative approaches to human rights.
