HIV/AIDS and Community Action: Now I know my Rights!

By Anna L. Mdee (nee Toner), Paul Otieno and Lisa Thorley

Abstract

yesThis briefing presents research on a small project on the use of a rights-based approach by groups of People Living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) in Northern Tanzania. It concludes that with support the groups were able to use the 2008 HIV/AIDS act to claim their rights to tackle stigma and access ARV medication. However, the fulfillment of these rights is limited by chronic poverty and structural weakness of the state
