Description:

Spheres of Influence

Parliamentarians can advance sexual and reproductive health rights (SRHR) and HIV issues

generally at local, national and Regional levels in several ways:

• As political leaders, Parliamentarians can influence public opinion and increase public

knowledge of relevant issues;

• As legislators, Parliamentarians can vote on Acts of Parliament and ensure that legislation protects human rights and advances effective prevention and care programmes;

• As advocates, Parliamentarians can mobilise government, the private sector and civil society to discharge their societal responsibilities in responding appropriately to SRH and HIV;

• As resource mobilisers, Parliamentarians can influence the allocation of financial resources to support and enhance effective HIV and SRH programmes that are consistent with human rights principles.
