Who is this compendium for?

In short: All con­cerned with the details of inter­na­tional agree­ments and deci­sions or national laws and poli­cies

This Com­pendium is for all those seek­ing to advance and pro­tect rights-affirm­ing and evi­dence-based responses to the HIV epi­demic and related sex­ual and repro­duc­tive health chal­lenges.

It is specif­i­cally designed to be a resource for those con­cerned with and involved in mul­ti­lat­eral nego­ti­a­tions—whether they be at the cen­tre or on the side­lines. This includes diplo­mats, other gov­ern­ment offi­cials and inter­na­tional civil ser­vants as well as civil soci­ety actors such as mem­bers of affected com­mu­ni­ties, advo­cates and aca­d­e­mics.

We also envis­age the Com­pendium being use­ful within national law and pol­icy fora among those seek­ing to advance or advo­cate for the align­ment of national laws, poli­cies and prac­tices with rel­e­vant global com­mit­ments. This audi­ence encom­passes var­i­ous actors work­ing at the national level such as par­lia­men­tar­i­ans, gov­ern­ment offi­cials, affected com­mu­nity mem­bers, civil soci­ety advo­cates and aca­d­e­mics.
