ARF-CALN Submission for the Human Rights Council’s Periodic Review of the Russian Federation (2012)

Executive Summary

Taking into account that the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) shall complement the work of treaty bodies, this report is focused on the implementation of recommendations given to the Government of the Russian Federation by the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (CESCR) regarding access to HIV prevention, drug treatment and overdose prevention among people who inject drugs in the Russian Federation.

Despite its declared commitment to prevention, care and treatment of HIV/AIDS, including among people who inject drugs, the Government of the Russian Federation opposes implementation of evidence based and internationally recognized interventions aimed at HIV/AIDS prevention and care for this highly affected and vulnerable population. In this submission, we propose a number of recommendations that the UPR Working Group should make to the Government of the Russian Federation.
