Access to Justice

An enabling legal and regulatory environment is essential to protect and promote health. Yet in many countries, legal frameworks remain inadequate, implementation is uneven, and civil society is disconnected from public health law and policy reform. Worse, law often stands in the way of effective health promotion, or is used to justify and perpetuate discrimination. Human rights are considered ‘critical enablers’ of the legal response to HIV/AIDS.

IDLO is working to enhance conducive legal environments, build the capacity of legal professionals in government, academia and civil society organizations, and strengthen and expand health-related legal services and rights.
