Law Reform

HALCO participates in law reform and community development activities that benefit or assist people with HIV/AIDS.

Law Reform activities are frequently based in community development initiatives and seek to involve as many and as broad a range of individuals with HIV/AIDS as possible.  Please contact us for more information about our Law Reform and community development activities.
