On World AIDS Day, The Hunger Project UK calls on the entire world community to take concrete actions to ensure that all people have the right to protect themselves from HIV and access to treatment if infected. Individuals can support organisations which seek to address HIV/AIDS through a rights-based approach.
Governments must put into place and enforce policies to empower at-risk groups, especially women and girls, so that they can protect themselves from contracting the virus. In addition, policies must be implemented to ensure universal access to treatment and care for people who are HIV-positive, as well as access to all other benefits citizens enjoy
