Despite the postponement of the 66th ordinary session of the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights (ACmHPR) due to the current health crisis, the African Men on Sexual Health and Rights (AMSHeR) and Synergía celebrate the 6th anniversary of the adoption of Resolution 275/2014 on May 12th, 2014.

Resolution 275 on Protection against Violence and other Human Rights Violations against Persons on the basis of their real or imputed Sexual Orientation or Gender Identity (ACHPR/Res.275(LV)2014) is a groundbreaking document for the protection of all individuals, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression in Africa.

AMSHeR and Synergía will soon launch new initiatives to promote the implementation of Resolution 275.
