Together with the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network, ALP works to improve awareness and understanding of the legal, ethical and human rights impact of the global spread of HIV/AIDS, promoting regular communication between both organisations at both management and operational levels on the planning, implementation and achievement of each organisation's goals, objectives and activities; and undertaking joint activities including research, publications, the creation and support of networks, conferences, and other educational activities.
