GNP+ congratulates the Global Network of Sex Work Project on the launch of its NSWP+ platform
Thursday, 06 June 2013
NSWP+ is a platform for HIV positive sex workers and people committed to treatment access and equal rights for sex workers living with HIV. The platform was established during the Sex Worker Freedom Festival in Kolkata, India when a group of HIV positive sex workers came together to demand recognition that in relation to HIV, sex workers were not the problem but part of the solution.
The NSWP+ website http://www.nswp.org/nswp-plus will collate and publish news and resources of particular relevance to sex workers living with HIV and others with an interest in the involvement of HIV positive sex workers in the global HIV response. A global advisory group of HIV positive sex workers is being established to inform the NSWP+ advocacy agenda. Sex workers living with HIV must be at the forefront of policy and debate around HIV and sex work. NSWP+ aims to share these voices and experiences at national, regional and international advocacy forums.
We strongly encourage our partners, donors and other stakeholders to visit the website and support the NSWP+ call for better access to affordable HIV medicines, a rights-based approach to the HIV response and for ending stigma and discrimination.
GNP+ and the HIV Justice Network: Advancing HIV Justice, A Progress Report of Achievements and Challenges in Global Advocacy Against HIV Criminalisation
Wednesday, 05 June 2013
A new report released today by the Global Network of People Living with HIV (GNP+) and the HIV Justice Network1 highlights the tireless work of advocates around the world challenging inappropriate criminal laws and prosecutions for HIV non-disclosure, potential or perceived exposure and transmission.
Advancing HIV Justice shows that advocates around the working to repeal, modernise or otherwise limit laws and policies that inappropriately regulate and punish people living with HIV have achieved considerable success. This is especially the case when policymakers or criminal justice system actors are open to learning more about scientific and medical advances in HIV prevention, treatment, care and support, and involve civil society – led by people living with HIV – to ensure that critical criminal law and human rights principles are followed.
