The Program on Global Health & Human Rights at the USC Institute for Global Health, In partnership with John Snow, Inc., is conducting baseline evaluations of the Global Fund’s Programs to Reduce Human Rights Barriers to HIV, TB and Malaria Services in a range of low-and middle-income countries. Supported by the Global Fund, the project seeks to inform the scale up of programs to reduce human rights barriers to services for all three diseases, focusing on people made vulnerable by discrimination and criminalization.

In addition to developing research tools, the USC/JSI team is responsible for the assessments in Ghana, Indonesia and Kenya. Other research consortia working with countries on the project include the AIDS Project Management Group, the International Center for Research on Women, John Hopkins University, Enda Santé, Jamaica AIDS Support for Life, and the Health Economics and AIDS Research Division at the University of KwaZulu Natal.
