Hivos and its partners will be out in force at the International AIDS Conference in Durban, South Africa from 18 to 22 July. The theme of the conference is Access Equity Rights Now”. It will bring together more than 20,000 experts, policy-makers and activists from all over the world working in the field of HIV and AIDS prevention, treatment and advocacy.

After years of intense debates, the Human Rights Council adopted the historical resolution on “Protection against violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity”, including the mandate to appoint an Independent Expert. This represents a huge breakthrough in the struggle for human rights for all groups.

As coordinator of the Stop Child Labour coalition, Hivos signed a Sustainable Garment and Textile Sector Covenant today together with 55 businesses, their trade organisations, the Dutch government and several other NGOs (see press release in right sidebar). The parties have agreed to work together to prevent discrimination, child labour and forced labour in their garment and textile manufacturing facilities in countries such as Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Turkey.
