Description

The study was conducted by the Forum for Women, Law and Development with the support of the POLICY Project/Nepal.

Abstract

"The present study, HIV/AIDS and Human Rights: A Legislative Audit, is an attempt to audit the existing laws, policies, and executives orders of Nepal in accordance with the International Guidelines on HIV/AIDS and Human Rights. The study also attempts to highlight the implementation of laws and policies in practice, identifying many gaps and weaknesses in existing laws and policies. We hope that
this study will provide guidance in reforming laws and policies and in developing an improved legal framework that best contributes to an effective response to the HIV/ AIDS epidemic and protects the rights and interests of PWHA and vulnerable groups."
