Statement of Principles on HIV, the Law and the Judiciary in sub-Saharan Africa
We call upon members of the judiciary to use their positions of power and influence to act as role models by providing leadership on the HIV epidemic in their communities. We commit to upholding the rule of law so that governments fulfil their national and international obligations relevant to HIV. We call upon UNAIDS to establish, as a matter of urgency, a Commission on AIDS and the Law that includes jurists and assists countries to align their laws with the International Guidelines on HIV/AIDS and Human Rights.
