Human rights promotion and protection is central to the response to HIV/AIDS. Denying the rights of people living with HIV, and those affected by the epidemic, imperils not only their well-being, but life itself. Across the globe more than 40 million people live with HIV, half of whom are women, and half the new infections are occurring in young people under 25. Many millions more are affected. Twenty-one years since the first reported case of AIDS, the truth is only just dawning that we are still in the early stages of the epidemic. Developing a response that is robust, enduring and, above all, effective, is more vital than ever before.
