Your Health, Your Rights

Your Health, Your Rights


We all have basic human rights, no matter who we are, or who we have sex with. One of those rights, it’s the right to health. This means that we all have the right to get health care including getting treated for HIV and STIs.

Sometimes, your right to health can be violated by healthcare workers if they:

  • Deny you access to health care
  • Discriminate against you while providing health care
  • Tell other people about your health status without your permission

It's important that you recognize your rights and know if they are being violated by a healthcare worker so that you can do something about it.
