Informing on women's rights

In the Dominican Republic, a discussion forum and a workshop on the human rights of people living with HIV/AIDS was organized by the grant recipient.  UNAIDS also provided resources for the event, which was attended by 78 participants including local human rights and HIV/AIDS NGOs, government officials, UN representatives and individuals living with HIV/AIDS. The workshop, organized exclusively for people living with HIV, provided the opportunity to empower them with greater knowledge of their human rights.

Comments: the UNDP representative confirms that the project was successful in raising awareness and that a committee was formed at the forum which will collect information on cases of human rights violations of people living with HIV/AIDS in the country to be presented to the Supreme Court in March 1999.
