Legislation contagion: building resistance — HIV/AIDS Policy & Law Review 13(2/3)

The HIV/AIDS Policy & Law Review recently carried a feature article recounting the spread of problematic new HIV laws in west and central Africa. It outlined less-than-model approaches in the AWARE-HIV/AIDS “model” law and described how its provisions had been replicated in many national HIV laws. At the time of writing that article, eight national HIV laws had been passed in the region. Since that date, the rush to legislate HIV in west and central Africa in ways that do not accord with human rights law or policy has continued unabated.
