Export Indicator

Number and percentage of municipalities with at least one human rights network functioningA human rights network will at least include: a human rights ombudsperson office, human rights desk or accredited legal offices that permit people living with HIV
What it measures

A strengthened human rights–based response to the epidemic will help to increase social cohesion and the community’s ability to respond to the epidemic. Programs aim to combat active discrimination by changing laws to
support people living with HIV and by ensuring that these laws are enforced. Mechanisms need to be in place to record, document and address cases of discrimination experienced by people living with HIV
and populations most at risk. An important step is to develop networks in which violations or complaints of human rights can be reported and handled.

Rationale

Stigma and related human rights violations fuel the HIV epidemic. Stigma is literally a “mark” or “blemish” on someone or something. HIV is often viewed negatively, and social attitudes may be damaging to those infected or suspected of living with HIV. Discrimination is defined more in terms of legal and human rights: when a person loses a job because of the negative connotation or impression of HIV, overt discrimination has taken place. HIV is heavily stigmatized in most societies.
