Short Abstract : Building local capacity to protect public health and promote social justice with stigmatised populations disproportionately at risk of HIV infection is difficult regardless of context. There is need for a non-colonising approach that respects local knowledge and expertise in ways that strengthen community-based initiatives to HIV prevention alongside education about human and legal rights. This paper documents an international collaborations approaches to integrate sexual rights and community legal education into HIV/AIDS online outreach and prevention programmes (OPOP) by actively listening to and including the voices of key stakeholders in the community. We report on the collaboration between clinical/community legal education initiatives, the local Thailand communities and the local clinical legal education students — and research and authoring of a sexual, human and legal rights manual to be used by OPOP workers at a local grassroots community-based HIV/AIDS prevention organization.
