The AIDS Law Unit focuses on HIV/AIDS and the law and seeks to educate and empower people infected and affacted by HIV. The Gender research and advocacy project seems to promote gender equality and the empowerment of women through legal research, law reform and related advocacy work. ACtivities focus on women and children through empowerment, training, awareness raising on spesific matters. Land, Environment and Development Unit addresses three areas which are closely linked and which also have potential to have a huge impact on poverty.
