The impact of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) on refugee protection continues to be an issue of concern to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
This note provides an overview of how principles of refugee protection and human rights apply to persons of concern1 to UNHCR who are vulnerable to HIV and its consequences and/or are living or suspected to be living with HIV and AIDS. The Note serves to inform governments and UNHCR staff of recognized standards in the field of HIV and AIDS and the protection of persons of UNHCR’s concern, and to assist UNHCR in its protection interventions and advocacy efforts.
