The Human Rights Commission of Sierra Leone (HRCSL) has been appointed a member of the Board of Trustees for the Network of HIV Positives in Sierra Leone (NETHIPS).
NETHIPS is an advocacy organization that promotes the rights and welfare of people living with HIV in Sierra Leone.
The Board of Trustees performs oversight functions and provides strategic guidance and direction for the organization. Appointed for a period of four years, the Board is comprised of individuals and institutions working in protecting and promoting the rights and welfare of People Living with HIV (PLHIV) Sierra Leone.
The Board has just completed a two day orientation workshop organized by SOLTHIS. The aim of the workshop was to strengthen the capacity of members of the Board to lead the governance system of the organization. The workshop was held from the 12-13 June, 2019 at the Office of SOLTHIS at King Street, Freetown.
HRCSL has been working with NETHIPS over the past eight years and has particularly provided technical support during training and advocacy activities that relate to stigma and discrimination and the protection of the rights of PLHIV.
