New Resource on Women’s Housing, Land, and Property Rights in the Context of HIV
"TOOLS FOR CHANGE: Applying United Nations standards to secure women’s housing, land, and property rights in the context of HIV" seeks to empower advocates working in the context of HIV by making the relevant United Nations standards and interpretations clear and accessible. This new resource provides advocates with a better understanding of international human rights and government obligations, in order to ensure government accountability and advancement of women’s housing, land, and property rights.
The Manual is an easy to use resource of international human rights tools for advocates working on women’s housing, land, and property rights in the context of HIV. It brings together the relevant international human rights documents and highlights core concepts, rights, and means of enforcement, providing examples of successful advocacy from around the world. Moreover, it draws on the voices of women, gathered through a series of focus-group discussions in different countries, to explain these rights and their uses in practical terms.
