This Checklist supports the in-country implementation of the 2017 WHO and UNAIDS Consolidated guideline on the SRHR of women living with HIV. To guarantee the guideline’s effective implementation and fulfil its ground-breaking women-centred spirit and principles, its uptake must include the meaningful engagement of women living with HIV in all their diversity. This guideline was developed with engagement from communities of women living with HIV throughout its development, publication and dissemination. In line with this collaborative process, it discusses implementation issues that laws, policies, health, social and other relevant initiatives and service delivery must address to achieve gender equality and support human rights. The overall objective of this Checklist is to support women living with HIV and community activists who care about the rights of women living with HIV to guarantee effective implementation of the WHO and UNAIDS Consolidated guideline on the SRHR of women living with HIV.

This study intends to provide a brief context of the current situation of migrants’ health rights, primarily by looking at the progression of HIV and AIDS related policies and practices over time. HIV is considered an indicator because it is one of the most sensitive health conditions. As a treatable disease, considerations surrounding HIV extend beyond health and encompass social issues of stigma and discrimination. The aim of this study was to compile information to assess whether there had been any positive changes at the policy level in the protection of migrants’ health rights, as well as to identify remaining obstacles in the protection of migrant’s health rights, specifically as it concerns HIV.
The South-East Asia Regional Action Plan (RAP) for HIV (2017–2021) provides a clear vision of “zero new infections, zero HIV-related deaths, and zero discrimination” and a goal of “Ending the AIDS epidemic as a public health threat by 2030”. The action plan has targets of reducing new infections to 51 000 and AIDS related deaths to 43 000 annually and increasing the number of people living with HIV on ART to 2.9 million by 2020. It promotes a people-centred approach and is grounded in principles of human rights and health equity.
