The HIV Legal Network promotes the human rights of people living with HIV or AIDS and other populations disproportionately affected by HIV and criminalization, in Canada and internationally.
In 2021, we undertook a planning process that would shape the strategic goals and priorities for the organization’s next five years (2022-2027). To do this, we sought the input of a broad range of stakeholders, from partner organizations to people living with and affected by HIV and criminalization, to staff. All identified areas of potential growth for the Legal Network and ways to reshape our work to ensure that we move ever closer to our goal of fulfilling human rights for all.
The result of this process is an ambitious plan that continues the Legal Network’s momentum in several important policy areas. In addition, the plan outlines ways in which the Legal Network will forge new partnerships and deepen existing ones to further its commitment to reconciliation and centering Indigenous perspectives, combating anti-Black and other forms of racism, and employing an intersectional feminist lens throughout its work. Finally, it considers how the Legal Network must prioritize organizational development to meet its audacious — but reachable — goals.
