Asia Catalyst, Thai AIDS Treatment Action Group (TTAG), Dongjen Center for Human Rights Education and Action

TOOL DESCRIPTION


The PDFs of this tool are:

1. Know it: The rights framework
2. Prove it: Documenting rights abuses
3. Prove it: Documenting rights abuses. Trainer’s supplement
4. Change it: Ending rights abuses

Aim:
To help community based organizations in communities affected by HIV/AIDS to understand their basic rights, to document rights abuses, and to design and implement advocacy campaigns.

Type of Document:
There are three ‘books’: knowing human rights, documenting human rights abuses, and advocating for change. Each book includes a trainer’s manual, which describes the steps to take; and a trainers’ supplement, which has lesson plans, sample exercises, and templates to use in a training or workshop.

Audience Intended:
Community-based organizations and/or trainers for use with community- based organizations.

Population Experiencing Stigma and/or Discrimination:
PLHIV and key populations

Stigma and/or Discrimination:
Discrimination.

Assess and/or Address:
Address and Assess

Implementation:
The ‘training manual’ can be used by individuals for self-training, while the ‘trainers’ supplement’ is designed for use by trainers to carry out training workshops for people working in community-based organizations. It is recommended that workshops do not exceed 10-20 participants. Workshops based on individual modules usually need about 45-60 minutes. The full training covering all three ‘books’ would take multiple days.

Comments:
About human rights relating to HIV: much broader than discrimination.
