BACKGROUND

Human rights and gender-related barriers pose significant challenges to accessing HIV and TB service. Effectively fast-tracking the response to HIV and TB necessitates addressing the urgent needs surrounding human rights and gender inequalities. Critical human rights barriers, including stigma, discrimination, violence, social attitudes, legal impediments, intimidation by law enforcement agencies, negative behaviours of healthcare practitioners, and hostility within the healthcare sector towards key populations, must be urgently addressed.

To address these human rights challenges, GAC, in collaboration with its partners developed a comprehensive Strategic Plan (2020-2024) for Human Rights-related Barriers to HIV and TB Services in Ghana. The Strategic Plan aims to remove human rights-related barriers to HIV and TB services and improve access to quality HIV and TB healthcare and support services through pragmatic implementation strategies.
