Reclaiming our lives!
GNP+ is the global network for and by people living with HIV. GNP+ advocates to improve the quality of life of people living with HIV. As a network of networks, GNP+ is driven by the needs of people living with HIV worldwide. Based on emancipation and self-determination, GNP+ works with independent and autonomous regional and national networks of people living with HIV in all continents.
Under the central theme Reclaiming Our Lives!, GNP+ implements an evidence-informed advocacy programme focused on:
- Human Rights;
- Positive Health, Dignity and Prevention; and
- Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights of people living with HIV.
The above platforms for action are the means to realise the Global Advocacy Agenda, agreed upon at the 9th International Conference of People Living with HIV/AIDS in 1999 in Warsaw, revalidated at the Nairobi Think Tank Meeting in November 2005, and reaffirmed at LIVING2008: The Positive Leadership Summit in August 2008, Mexico City.
The Global Advocacy Agenda focuses on: promoting access to HIV treatment, care, support and prevention; fighting stigma and discrimination against people living with HIV; and, promoting the greater involvement of people living with HIV (GIPA).
GNP+ is the only international network representing all people living with HIV. Elected representatives from the affiliated regional networks form the GNP+ Board.
