About the publication

As its title indicates, Human rights protected? Nine Southern African country reports on HIV, AIDS and the law charts the extent to which human rights are protected in the legal systems of the Southern African states with very high HIV prevalence rates. These countries are Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozam-bique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Issues that are covered in the publication include access to health care, privacy, non-discrimination, labour rights, women's rights, children's rights, prisoners’ rights and the government's oversight function.

Human rights protected? Nine Southern African country reports on HIV, AIDS and the law, undertaken by researchers based at or associated with the AIDS and Human Rights Research Unit, an initiative of the Centre for the Study of AIDS (CSA) and the Centre for Human Rights, University of Pretoria, updates a similar study completed in 2002.

Open Society Initiative for Southern African (OSISA) supported the research and publication of this study. OSISA also supported the accompanying publication, Human rights under threat: Four perspectives on HIV, AIDS and the law in Southern Africa, in which four topical themes (wilful HIV transmission, routine testing, access to condoms in prisons and the use of TRIPS flexibilities) are addressed.

About the Editors:
