Short description:
Mission
The Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network promotes the human rights of people living with and vulnerable to HIV/AIDS, in Canada and internationally. We accomplish this through research, legal and policy analysis, education, advocacy, and community mobilization.
Vision:
A world in which the human rights and dignity of people living with HIV/AIDS and those affected by the disease are respected and fulfilled; and where laws and policies facilitate HIV prevention efforts, as well as care, treatment, and support for people with HIV/AIDS.
Achievements include production of numerous, multi-lingual publications and resources on HIV/AIDS, human rights and drug policy, at both the national and international level, as well as collaboration with groups of people who use drugs and other vulnerable populations in education and advocacy for legal and policy responses to drugs and to HIV/AIDS that are based on sound evidence and on human rights principles and law.
