Civil Resource Development and Documentation Centre (CIRDDOC)

CIRRDOC continues to advocate for the enforcement of existing legal frameworks and for the development of new ones in Cross Rivers and Ebonyi states to promote and strengthen women’s property and inheritance rights, especially in the context of HIV. In partnership with the First Lady of Ebonyi state, CIRDDOC advocates for the passage of the anti-Stigma and Gender Bills into law. Additionally, CIRDDOC facilitates women’s access to justice by strengthening a cadre of community (including anti-VAW committees) and legal service providers; further sensitizing communities and women living with HIV and affected by AIDS on these rights; and interrogating customary laws which discriminate against women, particularly women living with HIV or affected by AIDS.
