Submission to the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights Input to HRC resolution 47/17

TAG submitted this testimony to the Office of the High Commission for Human Rights (OHCHR) to inform its upcoming report to the Human Rights Council (HRC) on ‘human rights in the context of HIV/AIDS’ (HRC resolution 47/17).The submission requests that OHCHR explicitly introduce in its report the right to science as a fundamental human right, and as a necessary condition of an effective HIV/AIDS response. Scientific progress itself is central to the prevention, mitigation and treatment of HIV/AIDS, and its universal accessibility is a key component of other societal enablers recognized in the Political Declaration. This submission is part of TAG’s work to advance public understanding of the right to science and to apply its principles to secure access to innovation for people with HIV, TB and HCV.
