Rights Here, Right Now!

Human Rights is in the focus of the XVIII International AIDS Conference, to be held in Vienna on the 18-23 of July 2010. In this short film experts and activist from around the world explain why it is important for human rights to get attention.




At the United Nations High Level Meeting on HIV/AIDS in 2006, world leaders reaffirmed that the full realization of all human rights and fundamental freedoms for all is an essential element in the global response to the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

Yet, 25 years into the AIDS epidemic, the essential element remains the missing piece in the fight against AIDS.

International organizations produced the joint statement: "Human Rights and HIV/AIDS Now More Than Ever - 10 Reasons Why Human Rights Should Occupy the Center of the Global AIDS Struggle". This joint statement, endorsed by over 650 organizations and networks worldwide, affirms that, now more than ever, human rights should occupy the center of the global struggle against HIV and AIDS.

The Hungarian Civil Liberties Union produced a series of short films to help explain why human rights is so important, and to call organizations worldwide to join the call and endorse the joint statement at:
