The tool was prepared with reference to Government of Canada policies and practices, and the primary audience is program staff in Canada in
- non-governmental development organizations
- community based AIDS organizations
- the private sector
who prepare funding proposals, and manage and evaluate projects or programs, which address HIV/AIDS and related issues in developing countries and countries in transition.
The tool will also be of interest to people in other donor countries undertaking similar work, including staff of inter-governmental and development agencies, who fund or manage HIV/AIDS and related programs.
The principles, approaches and examples provided should be of interest to people working in other areas of development not directly related to HIV/AIDS and who are seeking to incorporate human rights approaches in their work.
