Men Having Sex with Men and Human Rights: The UNAIDS Perspective; Statement by Susan Timberlake, Senior Law and Human Rights Adviser, UNAIDS Secretariat, Geneva

I am speaking today on the human rights of men who have sex with men and the UNAIDS perspective.

For the staff, the Standards of Conduct for the International Civil Service, paragraph 3, state that “The values that are enshrined in the United Nations organizations must also be those that guide international civil servants in all their actions: fundamental human rights, social justice, the dignity and worth of the human person and respect for the equal rights of men and women and of nations great and small.”
