Why are critical enablers important?

Critical enablers are essential elements of a successful response to HIV, TB and malaria. Without these efforts to create an enabling legal and policy environment that protects and promotes human rights and gender equality, health services may fail to reach people living with or affected by HIV, TB and malaria and key populations that are most vulnerable to HIV, TB and malaria infection, and may fail to achieve their anticipated health outcomes. Due to political, cultural and social challenges, as well as capacity constraints, organizations, including those representing key populations, may be unable to operate and to participate in the design, delivery and monitoring of successful national responses to HIV, TB and malaria.
