Abstract

HIV/AIDS is not just a health issue but is also a development issue. It is widely recognised that, just as the causes of HIV/AIDS have a number of facets, so too must the response be multifaceted or multisectoral.[1] It is also recognised that human rights are fundamental to managing the HIV/AIDS epidemic. This is not only because of inherent respect for human rights, or because countries have obligations to comply with various instruments of international law but also because, more pragmatically, experience shows that failure to respect human rights fuels the epidemic.[2] Public health and human rights are complementary goals.
