In August, Indonesia hosted the 9th International Congress on AIDS in Asia and the Pacific (ICAAP IX). In Indonesia, people living with HIV/AIDS (PLHAs) have for too long stigmatized and discriminated for their illness. The Indonesian National AIDS Commission (KPAN) has to play a more active role in ensuring that not just AIDS is reduced, but beyond that that PLHAs will no longer be stigmatized and discriminated against. A human rights based-approach in its National Strategy would be a good starting point for combating HIV/AIDS and the human rights violations which surround it.  See attached article published in CAVEAT(Vol.3, August 2009), a monthly human rights analysis newsletter published by the Community Legal Aid Institute (LBH Masyarakat) in Jakarta, Indonesia.
