Committee on the Protection of the Rights of People Living With HIV (PLHIV) and Those at Risk, Vulnerable to and Affected by HIV


The Committee on the Protection of the Rights of People Living with HIV (PLHIV) and Those at Risk, Vulnerable to and Affected by HIV was established by the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights with the adoption of Resolution 163 at the 47th Ordinary Session held in Banjul, The Gambia in May 2010. The mandate calls for the Committee to:

  • Engage State Parties and non-state actors on their responsibilities to respect the rights of people living with HIV and those proven to be vulnerable to these infections;
  • Engage State Parties on their responsibilities to respect, protect and fulfil the rights of people living with HIV and those at risk;
  • Recommend concrete and effective strategies to better protect the rights of people living with HIV and those at risk;
  • Integrate a gender perspective and give special attention to persons belonging to vulnerable groups, including women, children, sex workers, migrants, men having sex with men, intravenous drugs users and prisoners; and
