We must protect, promote and fulfil human rights if we are to achieve HIV and health targets on the African continent and ensure access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support services for all.This was the main call to action during a recent regional consultation for national human rights institutions and parliamentarians held in Nairobi, Kenya.Globally, the risk of acquiring HIV is 28 times higher among gay men and other men who have sex with men than among the general population and 13 times higher for transgender women.Prohibitive legal and policy environments and a lack of tailored services for key populations increase their vulnerability to HIV.The clinics have resulted in increased access to and uptake of health-care services.The initiative has also made a significant contribution to the progress made in the country’s AIDS response, with new HIV infections among children down from about 13 000 in 2013 to 8000 in 2017.
The participants also called for the repeal of punitive laws, policies and practices that create barriers to access HIV and health services and appealed to countries to ratify and domesticate the many existing African human rights mechanisms.
UNAIDS unites the efforts of 11 UN organizations—UNHCR, UNICEF, WFP, UNDP, UNFPA, UNODC, UN Women, ILO, UNESCO, WHO and the World Bank—and works closely with global and national partners towards ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030 as part of the Sustainable Development Goals.

GENEVA, — UNAIDS deeply regrets the decision of the High Court of Kenya to maintain key provisions of Sections 162 and 165 of the Kenyan Penal Code.
Those provisions criminalize certain private sexual acts and lead to discrimination and violence against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in Kenya.
