1.Implementation on abolishing travel restrictions on international people living with HIV
Policies and implementation guidance on the entry, stay and residence of foreigners living with HIV are harmonized and aligned for the full implementation of the 2010 Law.
2.Full employment of people living with HIV
Policy review and analysis of the regulation concerning the full employment of people living with HIV in public service conducted and used for sustained advocacy.
3.Rectifying gender inequality and discrimination in health-care settings
Policies and guidance implemented to end gender inequalities, gender-based violence and health care stigma and discrimination facing women living with HIV.
