Abstract

"This model law resource is designed to inform and assist policy-makers and advocates as they approach the task of reforming or making laws to meet the legal challenges posed by
the HIV epidemic among people who use drugs. The model law resource is not intended for any one country or set of countries. Rather, it is designed to be adaptable to the needs
of any of a wide number of jurisdictions. In some instances, the model law presents different legislative options for implementing states’ human rights obligations. It is hoped that this resource can be most useful for those countries where injection drug use is a significant factor driving the HIV epidemic, and particularly for developing countries and countries in transition where legislative drafting resources may be scarce."
