HIV Policy Lab Collaboration Releases Analysis Of HIV Policy Barriers Globally
HIV Policy Lab: 2020 Global HIV Policy Report: Policy Barriers to HIV Progress
The HIV Policy Lab is a collaboration between Georgetown University’s O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law, UNAIDS, the Global Network of People Living with HIV (GNP+), and Talus Analytics. In a new report, the HIV Policy Lab team “presents the state of HIV policy in countries around the world in 2020. Drawing on data from the HIV Policy Lab, it tracks which countries have adopted 33 key HIV-related laws and policies recommended by UNAIDS and WHO and which have not. Overall it shows that policy barriers exist throughout the world that undermine access to high-quality HIV treatment and prevention and increase people’s vulnerability to HIV infection and death. Not a single country has adopted all 33 recommended policies — policy change is needed everywhere in order to end AIDS” (11/30).
