Calling for the right to health and human rights in Nigeria

Love Alliance partners in Nigeria are attending the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) pre-session taking place in Geneva from 28 November to 1 December 2023 where the state of the human rights situation in Nigeria will be under review.

As the Love Alliance, human rights and the decriminalisation of LGBTQI+ people, sex workers and people who use drugs is a key priority. We will be attending the pre-session to advocate for the rights of these groups and one Love Alliance partner, CHEVS, will be a speaker, sharing our recommendations to improve human rights in Nigeria. 

Love Alliance partners, including the Centre for Health Education and Vulnerable Support (CHEVS) on behalf of a coalition of LGBTQI groups, Intersex Nigeria and the Drug Harm Reduction Advocacy Network submitted Shadow Reports to the UPR Working group, to highlight the challenges faced by human rights violations. You can read them here, as well as this short brief which highlights the key issues. Check out our advocacy brief here!
