Taking action against HIV and AIDS

Jointly produced by IPU, UNDP and UNAIDS, this Handbook is both a call to action for parliamentary leadership and a reference book to which parliamentarians and their staff may turn for information and guidance on specific issues of importance in the response to HIV. It provides many illustrations of good practices by legislatures and gives examples of leadership by individual parliamentarians. The Handbook is designed to help parliaments and their members to exercise fully their legislative, budgetary and oversight powers to tackle HIV in their communities and countries. The Handbook was released in English at the First Global Parliamentary Meeting on HIV/AIDS (Manila, 28-30 November 2007). French translation will become available at the beginning of 2008.
