This event seeks to launch the 2022 Frontline AIDS Human Rights Report, Protectors or Perpetrators? The Impact of Unlawful Policing on HIV, Human Rights and Justice. Since 2005, Frontline AIDS partners across the world have been monitoring human rights violations perpetrated against key and marginalised populations and have evidence showing that police and law enforcement officers are one of the most common perpetrators. From data collected through REAct, the Partnership’s community-based human rights monitoring and response initiative, the Report seeks to bring attention to the nature, extent, and impact of unlawful policing practices against criminalised populations across east and southern Africa (Kenya, Mozambique, South Africa, and Uganda), eastern Europe and central Asia (Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan). It also seeks to emphasise the critical role that civil societies and communities play in overcoming these challenges and deliver a call to action to address these.
