The protection and promotion of human rights and gender equality for people living with HIV, vulnerable populations and key populations, including young key populations, is critical to successful responses to HIV, TB and sexual and reproductive health. Zambia has signed and ratified a number of international and regional human rights treaties that commit to protecting the rights of all persons, particularly vulnerable populations; Zambia also includes the protection of human rights as a central tenet of its national Constitution. The Constitution provides all persons with the right to equality and non-discrimination, life, privacy, liberty, association and assembly, health, fair labour practices, social protection and freedom from torture or degreated treatment, amongst other things; these rights are important for people in the context of health, human rights and gender equality.
