Persons Living With HIV/AIDS have these rights that must be respected:
- International human rights laws and treaties give every person the right to health and to access HIV and other healthcare services.
- Human rights violations in the context of HIV include the criminalisation and enactment of punitive laws that target people living with and most affected by HIV. It also includes stigma and discrimination in the workplace and in healthcare services, gender inequality, and the denial of access to HIV services.
- Human rights-based HIV programmes should be implemented to avoid inequalities or discrimination, and when countries fail to meet the human rights requirements for people living with HIV they should be held legally accountable.
All citizens of the world must champion the cause for the support of the PLWAs-(Persons Living With HIV/AIDS). At Henry’s Care, we take time to meet and talk to them and encourage them in life. There are workshops that help us have an open forum and see the best ways to tackle societal stigmatization.
“You can help HIV/AIDS patients recover emotionally by avoiding stigmatization”.Henry’s Care Initiative quotes
Throughout our work, we are always targeting the weak and vulnerable parties. Our aim is to bring them at par with a normal life even though they are in their circumstances. We can achieve this through more charity and hard work targeted at reaching the remotest of societies.
