    • Project

      It’s My Right: Women Living with HIV project enhances human rights literacy, improves levels of understanding around Cambodia’s HIV/AIDS Law and builds a response capacity among healthcare providers, duty bearers and People Living with HIV (PLHIV), particularly women living with HIV(WLHIV). Its intended outcome is WLHIV having increased confidence to report human rights violations and improved knowledge of the mechanisms in place for addressing violations.

      WLHIV and KPs (Key Populations/marginalised at risk people) are empowered to advocate for their human rights and right to quality care. Stakeholders and duty bearers have a common understanding of what constitutes an appropriate response to rights violations and the penalties for breaking the law.
