UNAIDS Policy Brief: GIPA

Supporting the active engagement of people living with HIV in the AIDS response is one of UNAIDS’ most important goals. Building on its work in this area, UNAIDS has developed a policy brief with recommendations for governments, civil society and international donors on how to increase and improve the involvement of people living with HIV in global, regional and country AIDS responses.

GIPA or the ‘Greater Involvement of People Living with HIV/AIDS’ is a principle that aims to realize the rights and responsibilities of people living with HIV, including their right to participation in decision-making processes that affect their lives. GIPA aims to enhance the quality and effectiveness of the AIDS response and is critical to progress and sustainability. (2007)
