|With a view to evoking public and policy responses to the issue, the UNDP Regional HIV and Development Programme in Asia and the Pacific, in partnership with Asian Women's Human Rights Council (AWHRC), UNAIDS, UNIFEM and civil society partners including International Centre for Research on Women ( ICRW), Forum for Women, Law and Development (FWLD), INFORM, Lawyers' Collective, Positive Women's Network (PWN+) and Lanka+ organized the first ever Asia Pacific Court of Women on HIV, Inheritance and Property Rights in Colombo on 18 August 2007. The highlights of the Court, which was held in conjunction with the 8th International Congress on AIDS in Asia and the Pacific (ICAAP), included testimonials by 22 women from 11 countries in the region, special addresses by leading experts and a public statement by a jury of eminent citizens.
This booklet and the film enclosed comprise the highlights of the Court and reflections by people concerned with the issues. While the film takes one directly to the Court proceedings, the intention of the booklet is to help set the context and serve as a companion.
