BRELA aims to inform policy makers and other stakeholders; to be a forum for individuals, institutions and organizations from a diversity of backgrounds to present ideas, research and programmes, and thus contribute to the development of skills and capacity building; to serve as a resource guide for a broad range of readers, from users of public libraries around the country, to partners, providing an accessible way of updating, informing and stimulating discussions on HIV/AIDS. It is hoped that BRELA will become a tool for advocacy and education in the national, regional and international arenas.

Human Rights and HIV: A Manual for Action
With the challenges of the epidemic affecting so many, it seemed surprising that no training materials in the country had dealt with the human rights perspective on HIV. BONELA itself was receiving more and more requests for information, presentations and training. Evidently, there was a strong need for exactly such a publication as Human Rights and HIV: A Manual for Action.
Made in Botswana for Botswana’s unique context, it is written in English and Setswana. Because no local information had previously been comprehensively collected about this issue, BONELA chose to cover the broadest possible range of topics and involved the participation of a variety of key local groups.
Launched in November 2005, the training manual has caught the attention of a diverse audience from the highest levels of government to grassroots community groups and the general public.
The 14-book training kit covers the following topics:
- Understanding HIV and AIDS
- Human Rights and Our Common Humanity
- Human Rights, HIV and AIDS
- HIV/AIDS and the Law in Botswana
- Right to Health
- Testing for HIV
- Your Rights at Work
- Sexuality and Human Rights
- Women, HIV/AIDS and Human Rights
- Men, HIV/AIDS and Human Rights
- Youth, Children, HIV/AIDS and Human Rights
- Wills and Inheritance
Cost: BWP 300 for 14 modules and durable carrying case.
