 A fundamental principle of the United Nations Charter adopted by world leaders in 1945 is “equal rights of men and women”, and protecting and promoting human rights is the responsibility of all States. An innovative and efficient means for comprehensively addressing the identified gender, human rights and structural barriers to the protection of the rights of all Nigerians as it pertains to the HIV and AIDS response, is the establishment and strengthening of a multi-sectorial Gender and Human Rights State Response Team (GHR-SRT) in each of the States of the Federation. The aim is to expand the gains already established at the national level and provide a platform for multi stakeholders’ coordination of the response team at the State level. Beginning from 2017 till date, NACA with supports from partners established a Gender and Human Rights State Response Team (GHR-SRT) in 16 States with a developed TOR. The role of the GHR-SRT was to comprehensively address gender and human rights issues in HIV response, particularly among key and vulnerable populations as underpinned by a gap in knowledge and readily available technical assistance on human rights, law, stigma and discrimination in the context of HIV. It has representatives from the National and States’ MDAs from Ministry of Justice, MWASD, Legal Aid Council, SACA, MOH, NHRC Zonal offices, community members of key and vulnerable populations, COLaHR and other civil society organizations and the media.
