Abstract

"The story of Dominic d'Souza, one of countless many HIV infected people, illustrates that the law can play a central role in response to the HIV epidemic. Discrimination against people with HIV is a deep and evasive problem exacerbated by the fact that many of the people who have been and will be affected by the epidemic are people in a socially and economically disadvantaged position. No programme to address the epidemic can afford to ignore the fact that HIV threatens human rights as profoundly as it threatens public health."
