    27. On 2 October 2010, I participated together with the Chairperson and Commissioner Maiga as members of the Committee for the Protection of the Rights of PLHIV and those at Risk, in a conversation between the Committee, the UN Special Rapporteun on the Right of Everyone to the Highest Attainable Standard of Physical and Mental Health, Mr. Anand Griverm and the Human Rights Development Institute (HRDI). The conversation was held in Pretoria, South Africa.

    28. The purpose of this meeting which was organized by the Human Rights Development Institute was to explore ways in which the UN mechanism and our mechanism could work together towards tangible outcomes aimed at addressing human rights violations of PLHIV and those at risk in African. Participants were drawn from various institutions including the HRDI itself, lawyers from partner institutions of HRDI from Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Namibia, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda and DRC, University of Pretoria, UNAIDS and the National Committee of Women Living with HIV/AIDS in Uganda.
