Mission Statement

The Center for HIV Law and Policy is a national legal and policy resource and strategy center for people with HIV and their advocates. CHLP works to reduce the impact of HIV on vulnerable and marginalized communities and to secure the human rights of people affected by HIV.

Description

We support and increase the advocacy power and HIV expertise of attorneys, community members, and service providers, and advance policy initiatives that are grounded in and uphold social justice, science, and the public health. We do this by providing high-quality legal and policy materials through an accessible web-based resource bank; cultivating interdisciplinary support networks of experts, activists, and professionals; and coordinating a strategic leadership hub to track and advance advocacy on critical HIV legal, health, and human rights issues.

CHLP offers a collaborative approach to the persistent problem of HIV discrimination, and the shortage of trained advocates to address the problem: a national center dedicated to coordinating and expanding the power of HIV advocates.

Strategic coordination and sharing of resources is a sound approach to maximizing the representation of those with HIV, allowing existing organizations to use limited resources as efficiently as possible. The Center for HIV Law and Policy works with experts and community members from local direct service providers to national organizations to identify, create, and share high-quality legal and policy resources and advocacy strategies.
