Sexual Health, HIV/STI, and Human Rights
Office of the Dean
- Human rights abrogation or protection can affect the health of individuals, communities, and populations.
- Sexual rights violations are a subset of threats to human dignity. Forced, coerced, and higher risk sexual exposures are highly correlated with adverse sexual and reproductive health outcomes - including STI and HIV.
- Responses that address human rights may improve STI prevention and control, and better human rights contexts for those at risk.
