Training manual for EECA civil society activists on engagement with UN treaty bodies on the issues of SOGI and HIV
Year of Issue: 2020
Language : ENG
The advocacy response to violations of the right to health and other related rights still remains quite ineffective in the EECA region, for both the LGBT community and for people living with HIV.
As a response to such low involvement in international advocacy at the UN level, ECOM increased its educational efforts in 2017-2019. Such efforts include trainings for activists on working with UN treaty bodies, educational sessions on UN special procedures, as well as sessions on improving organizational capacity and supporting the advocacy work of partner organizations in various countries. This manual was also developed for this purpose. It is a collection of information on working with UN treaty bodies, and practical exercises for training groups and/or for the self-training of activists on this topic.
