living with HIV/AIDS must be ensured, 1. Reconfirms that discrimination on the basis of HIV or AIDS status, actual or presumed, is prohibited by existing international human rights standards, and that the term "or other status" in non-discrimination provisions in international human rights texts should be interpreted to cover health status, including HIV/AIDS; 2. Calls upon all States to continue to review their legislation, policies and practices in the context of HIV/AIDS in order to ensure that they respect human rights standards, including the prohibition of HIV/AIDS-related discrimination, and to take all the necessary steps, including the introduction of protective legislation and appropriate education, to combat discrimination and stigma, and to ensure the full enjoyment of human rights and freedoms by people with HIV/AIDS, their families and those associated with them; 3.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
