Unzip the Lips is a platform of individuals and organizations working for the rights and meaningful participation of key affected women and girls in the context of HIV and its intersections with other gender issues in the Asia-Pacific region.

Arising out of grassroots activism, Unzip the Lips has evolved since its inception as a campaign in 2011. Today, it is the only region-wide civil society-led platform bringing together diverse communities of marginalized women who are living with, affected by, and at higher risk of HIV to advocate collectively for improved health and human rights policies.
