Track D: Law, Human Rights Social Science and Political Science


Description: This track aims to highlight new knowledge and address gaps in the translation of behavioural and social science evidence into practice, and to contribute to the building of theory and understanding in HIV-related social science. The track also aims to promote understanding of the individual and social determinants of HIV-related risk, vulnerability and impact, to inform development of effective and sustainable HIV responses that are based on human dignity and individual entitlements. This track will feature research, analysis and evaluation on psychosocial factors that shape individual attitudes, experiences, and behaviors; social and structural factors that shape vulnerability and risk; social and cultural norms that underlie individual risk and community vulnerability; programmes that promote acceptation of human diversity and fast track access to HIV and STI prevention, treatment, care and support; social and structural factors that shape vulnerability; and methods and outcomes of individual and community engagement, leadership, empowerment, and self-determination.
