Creating Enabling Legal Environments: Conducting National Reviews and Multi- Sectoral Consultations on Legal and Policy Barriers to HIV Services. ESCAP, UNAIDS and UNDP. (2014)


This Guidance Document aims to support country stakeholders including governments, Joint UN Teams on AIDS, civil society partners and others to undertake a review of national laws, policies and practices to enable full achievement of universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support services, and to conduct a national, multisectoral consultation on legal and policy barriers to HIV services for PLHIV and key populations.


National reviews and consultations conducted in a participatory and transparent manner will increase awareness and understanding of a range of stakeholders on HIV, law and human rights issues, build consensus on necessary actions to strengthen the legal environment, and foster strategic alliances between different sectors of governments including parliamentarians, justice, law enforcement and health, affected communities and others.


Keywords: HIV, people living with HIV (PLHIV), key populations, law, human rights
