Legislating for Health and Human Rights: Model Law on Drug Use and HIV/AIDS — Module 7: Stigma and discrimination
 

This model law resource is designed to inform and assist policy-makers and advocates as they approach the task of reforming or making laws to meet the legal challenges posed by the HIV epidemic among people who use drugs.

Module 7 contains a prefatory note which discusses the rationale for reforming laws protecting against discrimination and vilification on the basis of real or perceived HIV status, drug dependence and drug use. The prefatory note describes the human rights obligations contained in relevant international laws and policies. This is followed by a section on model statutory provisions designed to strengthen anti-discrimination laws, and to ensure the greater involvement of people who use drugs in the development and implementation of laws, policy and programs affecting them. Module 7 concludes with a list of recommended resources.
