HIV Legislation Review Meeting
Date : 03-Nov-2011
The prevention, mitigation, care and support interventions for Persons Living with HIV (PLs) are seriously hampered by the high level of stigma and discrimination they experience in their daily lives. Recent research suggests that one of the key drivers of discrimination and stigmatization of PLs is the absence of HIV specific policies and legislation prohibiting and sanctioning acts of stigmatization and discrimination.
As part of CDD-Ghana’s HIV legislation sensitization and advocacy project, the Center will be organizing a review meeting with senior drafters of the Attorney General’s department, senior lawyers from the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) and other key stakeholders.
The meeting, scheduled for Thursday 3rd November 2011 at Palisades hotel (opposite World Health Organization), is to present the final draft legislation document to the experienced legal luminaries for their input. .
