Description

The purpose of this Handbook is to assist parliamentarians and other elected officials in promulgating and enacting effective legislation and undertaking appropriate law reform in the fight against AIDS. A brief outline is given of the international law basis of the International Guidelines on HIV/AIDS and Human Rights. These Guidelines require States Parties to human rights treaties to review, and if necessary amend their laws, policies and practices to ensure compliance with defined norms. Certain rights including health, nondiscrimination, privacy, education, information, autonomy, liberty, freedom of expression and association, and freedom from inhuman, degrading treatment or punishment are then examined specifically in the context of HIV/AIDS. The Handbook analyses each of the 12 International Guidelines on HIV/AIDS and Human Rights and gives best practice examples of their implementation, in terms of content and/or process, at national and sometimes local and regional levels.
