Human Rights Day 2020: Recover Better – Stand Up for Human Rights
This year’s Human Rights Day focuses on the devastating fallout of COVID-19 pandemic on the marginalised groups, children, and women and the need to “build back better by ensuring human rights are central to recovery efforts”. Every year Human Rights Day – a United Nations designated day – is observed on December 10. The UN encourages nations “to create equal opportunities for all” and address the issues of inequality, exclusion and discrimination. Human Rights Day is a great opportunity to spread awareness about the importance of human rights in our communities and worldwide solidarity in re-building after the pandemic.
At India HIV/AIDS Alliance, we place equal value on every human life. Fuelled by this conviction and bound together by a singular determination, this is where we work – to foster wellbeing, realise equality, and affirm the dignity of communities most affected by HIV/AIDS, our partners in this journey.
