The holistic report on the human rights of people living with HIV/AIDS in Serbia was created as a joint report out of three separate reports, namely: the report on the monitoring of individual experiences of people living with HIV/AIDS, the report on systemic monitoring i.e. the review of relevant laws, policies and programs in the country, and the report on community attitudes towards HIV/AIDS, through the monitoring of media coverage.
This report was created within the project “Monitoring of Rights of People Living with HIV/AIDS in Serbia”, implemented by Čovekoljublje (Philanthropy), the Charitable Foundation of the Serbian Orthodox Church in partnership with COD, Center for Society Orientation from Belgrade and in cooperation with the Office of the Commissioner for Protection of Equality and organizations of people living with HIV/AIDS in Serbia. It is financially supported by the Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of Serbia, through the Civil Society Support Programme. The project is the result of the initiative made through an international cooperation project, Disability Rights Promotion International1, headquartered at York University in Canada through which, since 2002, a scientifically based methodology of participatory holistic monitoring of human rights has been developed. The methodology has been adapted for this project for the field of human rights of people living with HIV/AIDS.
