Seeking Redress for HIV-Related Violations of Human Rights in the Philippines

Publications - Released in 2012

This report is the result of a project by the Philippine country office of the JointUnited Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) aimed to identify the various redress mechanisms in the Philippines that can be accessed by people living with HIV (PLHIV) in case their rights were violated.

Reddress is an act or process meant to correct a situation involving the violation of a right. It could be to address a past injury or violation, or to prevent future harm. Redress is usually obtained through the courts, although there are some out-of-court mechanisms that could also result in redress.
