Regional Consultation :: Nov 2011 :: AMEND 377 :: LEGAL SUPPORT TO LGBT GROUPS IN INDIA
The World Bank has recently commissioned Amaltas and the Humsafar Trust to carry out an assignment to help create an enabling legal environment for LGBT communities. It is intended to provide insights and inputs to policies and to develop a programmatic framework that encourages and supports the fullest expression of the rights of the LGBT people as citizens of India. The objectives include formulation of priorities on the basis of informed consultations with representative LBGT groups for better uptake of services provided by the State. The findings from this task will lead to the development of a legal road map which supports our human rights struggle and help us demand access and use services including those for sexual and reproductive health and HIV services.
