The information presented in this review may be useful both for non-governmental organizations and
community activists and for the government, when planning advocacy processes, promoting the rights of
PLWH, gaymen, other MSM, and trans*people and eliminating the barriers hindering their access to services.

The goalof this review is to identifythe legal barriers for people living with HIV, gay men, other men who have sex with men and trans*people in exercising their rights in different areas. To conduct such review, ECOM developed a methodology and a survey questionnaire, which we filled in with the help of our local partners. When analyzing legal practices, consideration was given both to judicial practices and to the information provided by activists, received from the organizations documenting cases of human rights violations and protection of such rights, news in mass media, and reports of non-governmental organizations submitted to the international agencies.
