Our values and core commitments
Our actions are guided by the following values: • The lives of all human beings are of equal value. A person's vulnerability to HIV is increased by unequal power relations arising from economic poverty and social marginalization. Gender, religion, class, race, ethnicity, age, disability, drug use and sex work are all potential factors shaping unequal power relations, human rights abuses, and vulnerability. • Everyone has the right to access the HIV information and services they need. People have the right to full and accurate information as well as to comprehensive HIV prevention programmes. People have the right to access HIV care and treatment, and appropriate health and social services. This includes HIV treatment and palliative care for those with AIDS-defining illnesses.
