This week’s profiled resource is titled Access to Justice: Evaluating the Law, Health and Human Rights Programmes in Kenya and was published in the Journal of the International AIDS Society. This article addresses how human rights violations in Kenya have an impact on the health of people living with HIV, but the integration of legal literacy and services into healthcare has been an effective strategy to empower vulnerable groups. This resource is also a required course reading for a session being lead by @MegSatt at this year’s Legal Empowerment Leadership Course, which is taking place this week in Budapest, Hungary.
More about Access to Justice: Evaluating the Law, Health and Human Rights Programmes in Kenya:
In Kenya, human rights violations have a marked impact on the health of people living with HIV. Legal empowerment programmes have the potential to promote accountability, reduce stigma and discrimination and contribute to altering unjust structures and systems. Given their apparent value as a health and human rights intervention, particularly for marginalized populations, further rigorous evaluations are called for to support the scale-up of such programmes.
